Anne Frank wrote a diary — not a blog.
But this is the 2010s, not the 1940s. And when Molly Ephraim — the actress who plays the teenager in the Westport Country Playhouse‘s upcoming performance of “The Diary of Anne Frank” — wanted to write about her experiences in the role, she turned to a device as natural today as a journal was during World War II.
“An Actor’s Diary” appears on “The Playhouse Blog.” Ephraim’s 1st entry chronicles her mad dash from Los Angeles to Westport; her less-than-dramatic initial read-through of the script, and another quick trip back to the West Coast.
Ephraim plans to describe the rehearsal process, performances, and life off stage.
Anne Frank’s diary provided an important look into the human condition.
Molly Ephraim’s blog tackles the creative process. Along the way, we’re sure to learn more about Anne Frank too.
(“The Diary of Anne Frank” runs from Sept. 28 through Oct. 30. For more information or ticket purchases, call 203-227-4177, or click here.)
