Magic Theatre & Campo Santo: Otto Frank Encore

Presented By

Magic Theatre & Campo Santo

Through Sep 30th

Magic Theatre and resident performance group Campo Santo’s bring the celebrated Otto Frank play back to Building D at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture for three nights only. Berkeley, CA actor Roger Guenveur Smith wrote and stars in this solo show inspired by Anne Frank’s father. Marc Anthony Thompson (founder of the Chocolate Genius music collective) composed and performs the live musical score.

According to Magic Theatre, Otto Frank is an intimate meditation on our current moment which interrogates our not-so-distant past. Otto, the only member of his immediate family to survive the Nazi death camps, addresses his daughter beyond her time and his own, navigating loss, adolescent ambition, the denial of the diary’s authenticity, and of the Holocaust itself. Smith and Thompson have devised poetic and sound-design-driven work that illuminates the Franks’ tragedy and triumph in a new and necessary light.

The Otto Frank encore runs Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, September 28, 2022 through September 30, 2022, from 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Ticket prices range from $20 to $70.
