After a sold ut debut in September 2019 (at the Center for Jewish History), Anne Frank, a Musical returns Off-Broadway at the Actors Temple Theatre (339 West 47th Street, New York NY 10036). Written by Jean-Pierre Hadida, adapted in English by Dylan Hadida, this musical was highly recognized in France for the last ten years. After receiving critical acclaim for his 2019 Off-Broadway production, David Serero returns as the director and producer of this revival, also starring as Otto Frank. Anne Frank, a Musical features 12 artists on stage to bring the poetry and music of Jean-Pierre Hadida.
"I am deeply honored to bring back to New Yorkers this important musical, which was a success last September with 5 sold out performances ending with a full standing ovation each night. Since the first time I’ve watched this musical back in 2009 in Paris, I fell in love with Jean-Pierre Hadida’s gorgeous music and unique way to express Anne Frank’s life, as well as the ones who lived with her while hiding. This theater piece includes emotive music, very respectful to Anne Frank’s character. This is a moving musical with a strong positive message for humanity and hope. It’s a perfect way for everyone to know about Anne Frank and her legacy, as well as the Holocaust. I promise you that there is not a single dry eye in the audience," said David Serero.
