The renowned chronicle of two Jewish families hidden in a cramped garret in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation is now a loving and haunting musical. While remaining faithful to its deservedly acclaimed source, with all of its suspense and warmth and eternal optimism, the timeless story is enhanced by a most moving and lyrical score. Propelled by the undying faith of a young girl on tiptoes before life, Anne Frank's heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting diary still stirs our deepest emotions in a reminder of the innate goodness within us all.
