ANN BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: March 7, 2013
Synopsis: Holland Taylor steps into the shoes of Ann Richards, the impassioned Governor of Texas who dedicated her life to empowering, expanding and enriching the lives of her constituents, friends and family. Ann is an inspiring and hilarious new play that brings you face to face with a complex, colorful and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. Taylor takes the audience on a journey, neither political nor a history lesson, swirling together the past and present to reunite Ann Richards with old friends and introduce her to a new generation.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"*Charles Isherwood: She was a memorable figure even before she opened her mouth — that sculptured meringue of hair seemed to enter the room before she did — and an unforgettable one when she opened it, as salty wisecracks poured forth like popcorn from a machine. She was politically as blue as they come, but managed to win the leadership of a state as red-trending as any in the land. She acquired a national political profile without holding national office, and openly discussed her alcoholism before this became a rite of passage for famous figures from across the political spectrum."
"The estimable Holland Taylor has not simply found the role of her career in former Texas governor Ann Richards; she’s written it as well, after doing impressively extensive research. If the actor somewhat outshines the scribe, it’s not a major problem. Taylor’s witty, sharp-eyed script is sufficiently compelling to serve for this entertaining solo show at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater. Ann is a large enough character to fill the Beaumont’s vastness, and Taylor lays her out there, warts and all, with relish and consummate skill."
"For anyone playing that old game in which you pick a historical figure to share a meal with, former Texas governor Ann Richards has to be an attractive candidate. Famously feisty and richly quotable, Richards remained an entertaining and beloved figure right up to her death in 2006."
""Ann," a warmhearted but unwieldy one-woman show written by and starring Holland Taylor as the late Texas Gov. Ann Richards, brings back to Broadway the age-old genre of straightforward, biographical solo drama."
"One important rule before putting on a one-person show must surely be to make sure you find someone who is already beloved. Actress Holland Taylor has found that in Ann Richards, the former Texas governor with the cotton candy hair and down-home humor."
