Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater is showcasing the play “Ann” written and performed by Holland Taylor. Taylor is just incredible starring in “Ann” portraying Ann Richards, the former governor of Texas.
Ms. Taylor’s energy knows no bounds. She would emabarass the Energizer Bunny. Aside from a brief intermission, Ms. Taylor is non-stop for close to two hours. In true Texas fashion, she “lassoes” your attention the moment she walks on stage and pulls you into her performance.
She has cloned herself to the very image of Governor Richards not only in outward appearance but also in every mannerism, voice and expletive as well!
“Ann” spoke lovingly of her parents and paid tribute to them making her the capable and successful adult she became. Her father told her as a child that she could accomplish anything in her life.
Taylor captures the enthusiastic and busy essence of the late governor as a young homemaker with the mantra: “If you rest, you rust.”
Holland Taylor truly is an inspiration. Her playwright and acting talent shines through her every word. It is truly obvious that she loves her “Ann” endeavors and passes that feeling on to you.
The excitement of Holland Taylor’s portrayal of Ann Richards is contagious and captures your undivided attention. You are in for a “Texas-sized” treat!
ANN, the new critically acclaimed play written and performed by Emmy Award-winning actress Holland
Taylor and directed by Benjamin Endsley Klein, has been extended through Sunday, September 1,
2013, on Broadway at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater (150 West 65 Street).
ANN is an intimate, no-holds-barred portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary Governor of Texas. This inspiring
and hilarious new 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 Holland Taylor (“Two and a
Half Men”), ANN takes a revealing look at the impassioned woman who enriched the lives of her followers, friends and families.
