THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK- Anne Frank
Yellow Tree Theatre (Dir. Jon Cranney)

"Ali Daniels, who plays the role of Anne Frank, was superb. She looked and acted the part very well. Although she is a college grad, there was a moment when she was sitting on her father's lap that I truly believed she was just 13 years old. Her playful demeanour, bright smile, and pesky personality (of a young kid) made her truly take the form of Anne."
- Bartley Stratton, of The PlayBillCollector

"The star of the show is Ali Daniels as Anne Frank. As my friend The Playbill Collector noted, for a college graduate she's a very believable teenager (and she looks a little like a young Judy Garland in braids). Spirited and wide-eyed, but with the wisdom of a child, she successfully conveys Anne's essence, both in conversation with others and in reciting passages from Anne's diary. I was reminded of the History Theater's Coco's Diary this spring, although obviously Anne had a much more difficult life than Coco. But both are insightful observations of the world around them."
