Ann is a no-holds-barred portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary governor of Texas. This inspiring and hilarious play brings us face to face with a complex, colorful and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. Written by Emmy Award winner Holland Taylor, 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 in Chicago, at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and on Broadway at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater. The Garden Theatre was honored to bring this new production to Houston starring Nora Hahn. Ms. Hahn has been seen on stages across Houston such as The Garden Theatre, Stageworks, Theatre Southwest, and Country Playhouse. Most recently, Ms. Hahn was seen onstage as the first female governor of Texas, Ma Ferguson, in The Garden Theatre's production of Bonnie & Clyde, and received critical acclaim in the role of Clairee Belcher in The Garden Theatre's production of Steel Magnolias.
