The story behind the man, the brand and Let Me Be Frank Productions.
Frank Hermans may have been destined for stardom, or so it may seem to fans, but despite his aspirations to “be a star,” Frank’s road to success hasn’t come easy.
Health issues, broken hearts, failed business ventures and plenty of fun, “Simply Frank” explores a history that only a few are privy to, until now.
Covering the years 1964, when a health-plagued boy was born to parents living in a trailer on Green Bay’s eastside, to 2007, the year he and his namesake troupe came to call the Meyer Theatre their home, “Simply Frank” documents the life and rise of a Northeastern Wisconsin favorite: Let Me Be Frank Productions.
Written by Frankly Green Bay editor, Andrew Kruse-Ross and Frank himself, “Simply Frank” is a fleet, comedic read that any Let Me Be Frank fan is sure to enjoy.
