Ann, a new play written and performed by Emmy-award winning Holland Taylor (Two and a Half Men) will come to Lincoln Center Theater’s Vivian Beaumont Theater on March 7,2013.
The show is based on the life of Ann Richards, the “tough as nails, funny as hell” former Democratic governor of Texas, who passed away in 2006.
“My artistic journey with Ann has been the soulful ride of a lifetime,” said Taylor in a press release. “Ann’s friends felt she was ‘born under a special star,’ and how can I not feel that light has shone on our path all the way here.”
Previously, Ann played to sold-out audiences at “Galveston’s Grand 1894 Opera House in the summer of 2010, San Antonio’s Empire Theatre in the fall of 2010, and Austin’s Paramount Theatre in the spring of 2011. In the fall of 2011 the new play opened to critical acclaim at Chicago’s Bank of America Theatre, and went on to have a run at Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center in winter of 2011/2012,” according to the release.
