The Texas-set bio play Ann, written by and starring Emmy winner Holland Taylor, will begin previews at Lincoln Center Theater’s Vivian Beaumont Theater on February 18, 2013. The previously announced Broadway production will be directed by Benjamin Endsley Klein and officially open on March 7.
Ann is a solo show that brings audiences face to face with Ann Richards, the complex, colorful and captivating former Governor of Texas, whose personality was heralded as bigger than the state from which she hailed.
Ann premiered at Galveston’s Grand 1894 Opera House in the summer of 2010 before playing San Antonio’s Empire Theatre, Austin’s Paramount Theatre, Chicago’s Bank of America Theatre and Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center.
The Broadway production of Ann will feature set design by Michael Fagin, costume design by Julie Weiss, lighting design by Matthew Richards, sound design by Ken Huncovsky and projection design by Zachary Borovay.
