'Diary of Anne Frank'

THEATER

September 11, 1997|By J. Wynn Rousuck

The Millennium Theatre Company, one of Baltimore's newer small companies, will present "The Diary of Anne Frank" at Cupper's coffee house for three weekends beginning tomorrow. Prudence Barry directs a cast headed by Marcie Levin, Gina DiPaula, Greg Seagle and Seth Morrison.

Adapted for the stage by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, the 1956 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama is based on the diary kept by teen-ager Anne Frank in the Amsterdam hiding place where she, her family and four others sought refuge from the Nazis. Frank's moving diary, first published in 1947, has sold more than 25 million copies. In 1959 it was made into a movie, and this winter, a new revival is scheduled to open on Broadway starring Natalie Portman and Linda Lavin.

Founded last year, Millennium performs at Cupper's, 1319 Bedford Ave., in the rear of the Pikesville Shopping Center. Show times are 8: 30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 7: 30 p.m. Sundays, through Sept. 28. Tickets are $10. Call 410-602-1884.
