Performed by veteran Texas film and television actress Libby Villari, best known for her recurring role as Mayor Rodell in NBC’s “Friday Night Lights”, and her turn as the Grandmother in “Boyhood”. 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.

Critics, industry professionals and fans can’t say enough great things about Libby Villari as Ann Richards.  San Francisco critics have nominated her for Best Solo Performance, with rave reviews such as   “…one of the most accomplished single performances I’ve seen…”, and “Villari is terrific. She was born to play Ann.” LA Casting Director Ed Johnston says “Libby is Ann Richards incarnate”, Shreveport

Times, “joyful, inspiring…not to be missed.”  Texas critics are crazy about her too: “Villari holds the audience spellbound…she is sensational”, “Libby Villari doesn’t play Ann Richards, Libby becomes Ann,” and “A breath-taking tribute…a brilliant performance.”  We’re pretty sure you’ll agree. Don’t miss this chance to see hilarious, inspiring, world class theater starring one of Texas’ most accomplished actresses.
