The Broadway production of Ann, starring 2013 Tony Award nominee Holland Taylor as governor Ann Richards, is offering $20 discount tickets to theatregoers ages 14-18 though the end of the Broadway engagement.
As previously announced, Ann, directed by Benjamin Endsley Klein, will end its critically acclaimed run June 30 at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater. Special $20 loge tickets are available for every performance only at the Vivian Beaumont Theater Box Office.
"We have been cooking this up at Ann for weeks, and now I can announce it. Something in the spirit of Ann, herself, that she would love," said star and writer Taylor in a statement. "Parents can come to the box office to buy their own tickets and bring their kids who can buy their own tickets. Groups of kids can come. Kids can come all by their lonesome. This is an unrestricted gift to the generation Ann cared about the most."
Ann, according to producers, "is an intimate, no-holds-barred portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary Governor of Texas. This inspiring and hilarious new play brings us face to face with a complex, colorful and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. Written and performed by Emmy Award winner Holland Taylor ("Two and a Half Men"), Ann takes a revealing look at the impassioned woman who enriched the lives of her followers, friends and family."
The play has scenic design by Michael Fagin, costume design by Julie Weiss, lighting design by Matthew Richards, sound design by Ken Huncovsky, projection design by Zachary Borovay and wig design by Paul Huntley.
Ann is produced by Bob Boyett and Harriet Newman Leve with co-producers Jane Dubin, Jack Thomas/Mark Johannes and Amy Danis, Sarahbeth Grossman, Jon Cryer/Lisa Joyner, Minerva Productions, Lary Brandt/Brian Dorsey, Kate Hathaway/Allison Thomas and Jennifer Isaacson in association with Lincoln Center Theater, Colleen Barrett, Nancy T. Beren, Francesca Zambello and Faith Gay, Patrick Terry/Rich Affannato, Marcy Adelman/Paula Kaminsky Davis, Campbell Spencer/ Suisman Gasparian and Bonnie Levinson/Emily Conner.
