It is not very often that a theater is built in order to house one specific production, but that is exactly what happened recently in Holland – when the Theater Amsterdam was created for the new dramatization of The Diary of Anne Frank, titled simply Anne.

The story of Anne Frank is so well-known, selling millions of copies in innumerable languages, dramatized on world stages and made into a prize-winning movie, that there would not seem to be any need to present it yet again – much less build a new theater for it. Thus, when I was recently in New York, I was intrigued to read that this totally new play was about to be produced in Amsterdam.
