Seattle's Intiman Theatre staging of The Diary of Anne Frank will star actress Lucy DeVito in the title role of the young diarist.

The Diary of Anne Frank will run March 21-May 17, with an official opening set for March 26. DeVito will make her Intiman debut with the production, which will also feature Matthew Boston (Mr. Frank), Amy Thone (Mrs. Frank), Alban Dennis (Mr. Dussel), Lindsay Evans (Margot Frank), Jim Gall (Mr. Kraler), Carol Roscoe (Miep), Shellie Shulkin (Mrs. Van Daan), Connor Toms (Peter Van Daan) and Michael Winters (Mr. Van Daan).

Sari Ketter stages the drama adapted from Frank's diary by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. The original 1956 Broadway production of Anne Frank earned both the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Anne Frank documented her life within her diary as her family and four others hid for over two years in a small flat hidden behind a bookcase in an Amsterdam warehouse. Always optimistic despite the circumstances she faced, Frank's words live on with translations in some 60 languages and over 25 million copies of her diary sold throughout the world.

The creative team for the Intiman production includes Nayna Ramey (set design), Frances Kenny (costume design), Marcus Dilliard (lighting design) and Chris Walker (sound design).



DeVito, the daughter of actor Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, has appeared on screen in "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "The Good Night," "This Revolution" and the upcoming film "A Quiet Little Marriage."
