Tony Award winner Elizabeth Ashley is the legendary Ann Richards in ANN, a no-holds-barred look at the brassy, blue governor who changed the face of Texas politics. This Arkansas Repertory Theatre production is the focus of a Clinton School program today (1/30) at 12 noon.
A woman who always had the right one-liners loaded and ready to fire, ANN is brought to vivid life in a tour-de-force performance by Tony Award-winner and Emmy and Golden Globe-nominee Elizabeth Ashley (Barefoot in the Park and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof on Broadway, “Evening Shade”, Netflix’s current hit “Russian Doll”) and directed by Drama Desk Award-winner Michael Wilson (The Best Man and The Trip to Bountiful on Broadway).
Come sit a spell for this story of an impassioned woman who enriched the lives of her followers, friends, and family…with all the charm, charisma, and persuasion that makes a politician good at her job.
All Clinton School Speaker Series events are free and open to the public. Reserve your seats by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (501) 683-5239.
Ann opens on Friday, January 31 after previews which started on January 29. It runs through February 23.
