Lone Star state comes to Broadway

Holland Taylor's 'Ann' opens

The Lone Star state came to Broadway on Thursday for the opening of Holland Taylor’s solo show “Ann,” about the former Texas Gov. Ann Richards.

There were boots, bolo ties, sequined cowboy hats and daughter Cecile Richards. Also Anne Hathaway, there to celebrate the opening with her mother, Kate, a member of the producing team led by Bob Boyett and Harriet Newman Leve.

Taylor had to cut some excellent anecdotes about the opinionated Richards. One of her faves involved a trip to a small Texas border town where Richards stopped at a Dairy Queen to ask directions, but didn’t know how to pronounce the town’s Mexican name.

“So Ann said to a little girl there, ‘Honey, how do you pronounce the name of this place?’ And the girl looked at her and said” — and here Taylor hit every syllable — ” ‘DAI-RY QUEEN.’ “
