BWW Review: ANN Reminds Us How Much We Need Someone Like Her TodayBWW Review: ANN Reminds Us How Much We Need Someone Like Her Today
by Frank Benge - Apr 14, 2016

ANN, written and performed by Emmy® Award winning actress Holland Taylor, is a one woman portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary governor of Texas. Richards' persona was as big as the state itself and just as colorful. Originating at the Galveston Grand Opera, the show has played to sold-out audiences across Texas, winning critical acclaim in Chicago, at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and on Broadway at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater where she won the Outer Critic's Circle Award for Best Solo Performance. ANN has returned to ZACH Theatre in a production directed by Benjamin Endsley Klein. The evening starts out as a commencement address and through flashback covers Richards youth through to her post Governor years. What is revealed is an in depth portrait of this amazing woman who was fighting for the same things that still ring true in our current political arenas. What is also revealed is just how much we need a woman like Ann Richards today and how sorely she is missed. (more...)
