Playhouse creatures Theatre is flying in one of our favorite comedians, star of Showtime’s “Fierce Funny Women” and former television writer (Roseanne and Saturday Night Special) Betsy Salkind, for a limited run of her acclaimed show “Anne Frank Superstar.”
Is it a coincidence that “Anne Frank Superstar” opens on the last night of Hanukkah (The festival of lights)? And is starring one of comedy’s brightest stars! Well, yes, yes it is. But an exciting one! And what better way to celebrate than with laughter. So whatever your religious preference, Muslim, Jewish, Wiccan, Catholic, Lutheran, Atheist… think of this show as our holiday gift to you, from your friends at Playhouse Creatures Theatre! Don’t say we never got you anything!
"Anne Frank Superstar, Salkind's hilarious satire of a television industry that will go to any length for commercial success, even trivializing one of the most famous victims of the holocaust. Salkind imagines what would happen if the story of Anne Frank were to be developed as a sitcom, titled "Let's Be Frank!" Recalling Tracey Ullman in her range, Salkind portrays eight characters (including a precocious 11-year-old girl around whom the series is developed, a British producer and a deaf stand-up comic). And she does so with a brashness that likely would offend the more politically correct." - Boston Herald
The Boston Globe said, "there are countless ways to make someone laugh, and Betsy Salkind knows most of them. Want sarcastic wit? Political humor? Or maybe just a good animal mime? Salkind can pull all that off and more.” Best known as 'Squirrel Lady,' Betsy has appeared on "Girls Night Out," "Last Comic Standing," and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
