Coming soon: "The Diary of Anne Frank"

"The Diary of Anne Frank" is a little like going to the dentist.

Even though there's nothing particularly new you are going to learn, you go just to be reminded of something important, like caring for your teeth.

The story of Anne Frank is one we all know, but seeing it now and then is a good idea because it reminds us of how inhumane some people can be and how noble others are. Both are within us.

That's why a visit to the Milwaukee Rep production of "Anne" is such a good idea. The play opens on Friday, Oct. 26 and runs until early December.

The play features some Milwaukee favorites who are members of the new Rep Associate Artists roster, including Laura Gordon, Jonathan Gillard Daly, Lee Ernst, Deborah Staples and the wonderful Jim Pickering.

"The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the greatest testaments to living in the present that I've ever read, and it never fails to move me to tears, says Artistic Director Mark Clements.

"The story may be set against one of history's grimmest eras, but out of that comes incredible light and incredible hope from the strength of Anne's spirit. This is a story that every generation needs to hear, and we're honored to tell it."

Tickets are available at The Rep's website or by calling the box office at (414) 224-2490.
