Tough as Nails. Funny as hell.
A new play written and performed by Holland Taylor
This season, a true original comes to Broadway at Lincoln Center.
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 family.
After playing throughout Texas to sold-out audiences, ANN went on to win critical acclaim both in Chicago and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. And now this extraordinary play comes to Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater in a production directed by Benjamin Endsley Klein (resident director of War Horse). Don't miss this unforgettable performance that critics are calling "a true tour-de-force with phenomenal humor, strength and warmth. A MUST SEE!" (Fox News)
During her outstanding career, Holland Taylor has been nominated for six Emmy Awards and won for her supporting role on "The Practice." For the past ten seasons, she has delighted audiences as Evelyn Harper on the hit comedy "Two and a Half Men." Her many film credits include Legally Blonde, Baby Mama and The Truman Show. Ms. Taylor was also named one of Newsweek's "150 Fearless Women" of 2012.
