1) Many have read the book but few in recent years have seen the stage play based on it, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1956. Pittsburgh Public Theater is providing a fresh look with its revival of The Diary of Anne Frank. The story is, of course, one of the enduring true stories of the past century, drawn from the diary of a young teenager hunted and eventually caught by Nazi occupation forces in The Netherlands during World War II. Anne Frank died of illness at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp early in 1945—only a few months before V-E day. She was 15. Her diary, left behind in Amsterdam, was found and first published in Dutch in 1947. The rest is history. 8 p.m. Continues until October 25. O’Reilly Theater, 621 Penn Ave., Cultural District. (MV)
