Ann, written by and starring Emmy winner and 2013 Tony nominee Holland Taylor, will end its run at Broadway's Vivian Beaumont Theatre earlier than expected. The one-woman play about late Texas governor Ann Richards will play its final performance on June 30, rather than the previously announced September 1 closing date. At the time of its closing, Ann will have played 19 previews and 132 regular performances.
In the solo show, Holland Taylor plays Ann Richards, the famed and charismatic former governor of Texas. Ann brings the audience face to face with the political icon, whose personality was said to be bigger than the state from which she hailed.
Ann features 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.
The play premiered at Galveston’s Grand 1894 Opera House in 2010, and went on to play San Antonio’s Empire Theatre, Austin’s Paramount Theatre, Chicago’s Bank of America Theatre and Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center.
Directed by Benjamin Endsley Klein, opened on Broadway on March 7. Click below to relive the show’s starry opening night.
