You can always count on the Zach Theatre for quality local theater production here in Austin. Holland Taylor’s ANN is no exception.

ANN is an intimate, no-holds-barred portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary late 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 and originally performed 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.

While Taylor isn’t portraying the tough as nails Texas legend this time around, the woman who steps into the role does not disappoint. Libby Villari dons the wig and embodies the governor’s strength, humor and wit with perfection. You may recognize Villari as we did as Mayor Rodell from the first season of Friday Night Lights. She also portrayed the grandmother in Boyhood, as well as numerous other TV series and films shot in Texas and beyond.

But we don’t want you to just take our word for how great this production is! We want you to see it for yourself. That’s why we’re giving away two tickets to see the production on Friday, August 16.
