Our next Rialto Recommends isn't a movie but rather a captured live performance of Holland Taylor's one-woman play ANN which she both wrote and performed. ANN is a no-holds-barred theatrical portrait of Ann Richards, legendary Governor of Texas (1991-95). The play is a compelling look at the impassioned, inspiring woman who enriched the lives of her followers, friends and family. Beginning with a commencement address, the play bursts into a blistering day in the life of the governor, with a cascade of task-wrangling and conversations with everyone from Richards' friend Bill Clinton to her grandbaby Lily. We see the grit, warmth and depth in her colorful, captivating character, bigger than the state from which she hails. Neither partisan nor political, ANN began as Taylor's quest to understand what it was about this housewife, mother, grandmother, leader and iconic patriot who inspired so many people so deeply. Writing the play became a four-year journey for Taylor, crisscrossing the country, interviewing people who knew Richards, watching countless hours of video coverage and pouring over reams of her personal and public papers at the University of Texas. In the end, Taylor's greatest resources were the family, friends, staff and colleagues of the governor who allowed Taylor to know Ann Richards. Directed for the stage by Benjamin Endsley Klein (Broadway credits include "The Ferryman" and "Carousel"), this production was recorded at the Zach Theater in Austin, Texas, following its national tour and Broadway run at Lincoln Center's Vivian Beaumont Theater in 2013, which earned Taylor a Tony Award nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Play. ANN is streaming on the PBS Passport App in Season 47 of Great Performances, Episode 24. Check out ANN and share your thoughts on this captured live play about the legendary, larger than life Ann Richards.
