Zusak’s THE BOOK THIEF on stage

The novel, which follows a poor German girl, the thief of the title, whose family hides a Jewish man in its basement, is also getting a life off the page. Brian Percival, who has directed several episodes of “Downton Abbey,” has been chosen to direct a film version. And last week a stage adaptation, written by Heidi Stillman, made its debut as a young-adult production here at the venerable Steppenwolf Theater, where it runs through Nov. 11.

Read more about the stage production in this New York Times piece.
