Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett began their enormously successful and remarkably prolific collaboration in 1928, a partnership that lasted 34 years.Their success on Broadway eventually led to the pair being signed as a writing team by MGM, where they launched the popular Thin Man series. Writing the stage version of The Diary of Anne Frank was the achievement of which both Goodrich and Hackett were most proud. It took the couple two years and eight rewrites before they came up with a draft which pleased Otto Frank, Anne’s father.The original Broadway production received the 1956 Tony Award for Best Play, and the script received the 1956 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Goodrich and Hackett also adapted the play for the screen in 1959.

“…in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” Anne Frank | Check out 'GAAR The Mirror presents The Diary of Anne Frank' on Indiegogo.
Happy to share announcement for upcoming production of “Diary of Anne Frank” and a wonderful article about one of its cast members meeting with Anne Franks cousin Doris Hollander in preparation for the role.
Excited to share the announcement about DIARY OF ANNE FRANK in Broadway World! Thank you for the shout out.
Sabra Jones, who is the Artistic Director of the Mirror takes time to nurture people and plays. She began workshopping this play two years ago. Two years later it will finally be realized. And how appropriate that it comes out when we all have just come out of lockdown so can relate in a new way to this old story.
The play is a fresh take on the diaries which tells the story of Anne Frank's friendship with her neighbor, Peter Van Daan, who was locked up with her in the same attic. He was three years older than her and brought his cat with him. Some say that a romance bloomed during those years. What is certain is that they were the only teenagers in that house, so they shared a great deal that the adults could not.
The diaries are compulsory reading in most schools, so this play should come as a welcome addition for those who have read the diaries. This play is suitable for young teens and truly gives an insight into what it was like to live under lock down in N**i Occupied Holland.
GAAR/The Mirror will present a production of The Diary of Anne Frank at the Hardwick Townhouse, August 20-22.

During our day of events commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Freedom Rides, Dr. Bernard Lafayette signed copies of his book, "In Peace and Freedom: My Journey in Selma," alongside book signings with Dr. Catherine Burks-Brooks and Dr. Bob Zellner.
Overview of "In Peace and Freedom: My Journey in Selma":
"Bernard LaFayette Jr. (b. 1940) was a cofounder of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), a leader in the Nashville lunch counter sit-ins, a Freedom Rider, an associate of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), and the national coordinator of the Poor People's Campaign. At the young age of twenty-two, he assumed the directorship of the Alabama Voter Registration Project in Selma — a city that had previously been removed from the organization's list due to the dangers of operating there.
In this electrifying memoir, written with Kathryn Lee Johnson, LaFayette shares the inspiring story of his years in Selma. When he arrived in 1963, Selma was a small, quiet, rural town. By 1965, it had made its mark in history and was nationally recognized as a battleground in the fight for racial equality and the site of one of the most important victories for social change in our nation.
LaFayette was one of the primary organizers of the 1965 Selma voting rights movement and the Selma-to-Montgomery marches, and he relates his experiences of these historic initiatives in close detail. Today, as the constitutionality of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act is still questioned, citizens, students, and scholars alike will want to look to this book as a guide. Important, compelling, and powerful, In Peace and Freedom presents a necessary perspective on the civil rights movement in the 1960s from one of its greatest leaders."

60 years ago, on May 4th, 1961, the Freedom Riders left Washington, D.C. on a New Orlean's-bound Greyhound bus to protest segregated bus terminals. Tomorrow in Montgomery, Alabama, an event will be held to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Freedom Rides at the Freedom Rides Museum. Event details below:
Tuesday, May 4th at 10:00 AM
Freedom Rides Museum
210 South Court Street
Montgomery, AL 36104
Parking is available at the First Baptist Church lot on South Perry Street
"The event date is significant, coinciding with the day 60 years ago that the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) Freedom Riders left Washington, D.C. traveling to New Orleans to protest segregated bus terminals. The Freedom Rides, which took place throughout the South that summer, would ultimately lead the Interstate Commerce Commission into issuing regulations prohibiting segregation in interstate transit terminals in the fall of 1961, under pressure from the Kennedy administration."
