The play Ann really catches the essence of the former Texas Governor, nad, indeed, the inside day to day of any successful politician. The acting is amazing, and the resemblance of the actress to Ann Richards is incredible.

Holland Taylor's performance and play depicting a Texas heroine, Ann Richards, was absolutely spot on. The enthusiasm and viewpoints on life that Ms. Richard's had were certainly felt by the audience.
