A recent Los Angeles staging of The Diary of Anne Frank, which utilized a cast of predominantly Latinx actors, will return for a limited, six-week engagement beginning January 11, 2019, at the Dorie Theatre.

The production will feature returning cast members Aris Alvarado (Gilmore Girls), Keith Coogan (Adventures in Babysitting), Tasha Dixon, David Gurrola (Insecure), Heather Olt (The Middle), Raquenel (My Life is a Telenovela), Robert C. Raicch (Are We There Yet?), Raymond Abel Tomas, Emiliano Torres (Shooter), Nikki Mejia (Big Dogs), and newcomer Genesis Ochoa as Anne Frank.

Producers Stan Zimmerman, Anne Kathryn Parma, and Pop-Up Playhouse present the revival that was inspired by a CNN report about the true story of a Jewish woman in Los Angeles who created a safe house for a Latina mother and her two daughters after her husband was deported by ICE.

The staging utilizes Wendy Kesselman’s adaptation of the original stage play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett.

Zimmerman directs the production that runs through February 24. Performances take place Friday-Sunday. Click here for tickets.
