ANN by Holland Taylor
Featuring Bonnie Agan as Ann RichardsSignature Event Series Theatre
Join us for “ANN”, featuring Bonnie Agan, directed by Lisa Tricomi, April 28-May 8, 2022. “ANN” is an intimate, no-holds barred portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary late Governor of Texas. This inspiring and hilarious play portrays a complex, colorful and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. It ran on Broadway with veteran actress, Holland Taylor. She also wrote the play. The New York Times called it “fiery, salty and brash”.
Ann Richards’ passion for inclusion and diversity was the hallmark of her life and political career. She was also firmly rooted in her belief in justice and citizen participation. While politics could make one weary and cynical, Bonnie believes “ANN” can light the fire of civic activity and deliver a few laughs along the way.
There will be moderated conversations with women currently running for public office after select performances on April 29 and 30, May 1 and 5.
