We thought we’d never chuckle at politics again, and then Ann (The Ann Richards Play) landed at Stage West Theatre –– our sides splintered with laughter.
With all the stamina a liberal Texan can muster, this one-woman act showcases the artistic endurance of Linda Kay Leonard. First written and performed by Holland Taylor — the snappy, smart mother on Two and a Half Men — the play gained momentum around the country after an impressive run on Broadway at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater. Leonard saddles up to play our former governor, reeling in the hilarity that comes with Texas state politics.
