Hailed by USA Today as "Funny & Tender. A Deeply Affectionate, Clever Tribute," ANN is an intimate, no-holds-barred portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary Governor of Texas, whose heroic and humane voice is strikingly relevant today. This inspiring and hilarious play brings us face to face with a complex, colorful and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. Written and performed by Emmy Award winner Taylor ("Two and a Half Men"), who the New York Times called a "fiery dynamo", ANN takes a revealing look at the passionate woman who lifted the lives of all she touched, followers, friends, and family.

For her performance in ANN, Taylor received the 2013 Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo Performance and was nominated for a 2013 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play, Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance and Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance.

ANN began as an unexpected mission-quest for Taylor to understand about the essential power of this housewife, mother, grandmother, leader, and iconic patriot who affected so many people so deeply. Researching and writing the play became a four-year journey for Taylor, crisscrossing the country, watching countless hours of video coverage, and poring over reams of Richards' personal and public papers at the University of Texas. Her greatest resources were the closest colleagues of the Governor as well as her family, friends, and staff - with many of whom Taylor shares friendships today.

ANN has scenic design by Michael Fagin, costume design by Julie Weiss, lighting design by Matthew Richards, sound design by Ken Huncovsky, projection design by Zachary Borovay, and wig design by Paul Huntley.

ANN played to sold-out audiences at Galveston's Grand 1894 Opera House in the summer of 2010, and continued its development at 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 smash hit run at Washington DC's Kennedy Center in winter of 2011-2012, followed by a critically acclaimed production at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater in 2013.
