‘Ann’ elects Broadway dates

Holland Taylor play to open in March

The Broadway production of Holland Taylor topliner “Ann” has locked in dates, beginning its run at the Vivian Beaumont Theater in February.

Produced by commercial producers Bob Boyett and Harriet Newman Leve in association with Lincoln Center Theater (which owns the Beaumont), the Ann Richards bio-play isn’t produced by LCT as part of its spring season on Broadway. That org’s upcoming Rialto outing, Nathan Lane starrer “The Nance,” has booked a stint in the Lyceum Theater for an April opening.

“Ann” premiered in 2010 in Galveston, Texas, and went on to play others cities including Chicago and Washington, D.C., where the show ran at the Kennedy Center early this year. Taylor, who plays former Texas governor Richards, also penned the play, to be helmed by Benjamin Endsley Klein.

Klein is returning to the project after directing prior incarnations, as are the members of a creative team that includes Michael Fagin (sets), Julie Weiss (costumes), Matthew Richards (lights), Ken Huncovsky (sound) and Zachary Borovay (projections).

“Ann” begins previews Feb. 18 ahead of a March 7 opening.
