New stage production of ‘Diary Of Anne Frank’ replaces Nazis with ICE agents hunting for illegal immigrantsThe new production will re-interpret the story as one of illegal immigrants hiding from ICE agents, a promotional notice in Broadway World explains.‘Zimmerman’s unique take on the staging was inspired by the true story of a Jewish woman in Los Angeles who created a Safe House’ for a Latina mother and her two daughters after her husband was deported by ICE,’ the notice reads. 'The characters in the attic will be played by a LatinX cast.’ Genesis Ochoa will star in the show as Anne Frank, and the cast includes Keith Coogan, Tasha Dixon, David Gurrola, Heather Olt, Raquenel, Robert C. Raicch, Teddi Shaffer, Raymond Abel Tomas, and Emiliano Torres. More: Here
Oh for fucks sake.Like you want to tell that story? Fine. Make a play about the immigrants all you want. But don’t call it the Diary of Anne Frank. Don’t erase the actual experience of a fucking holocaust victim for your little political gotcha.
