    •  A one-woman play about Ann Richards (3+ / 0-)

      is at Lincoln Center in NYC through June 8.

      Written and performed by Holland Taylor (best known as Charlie's mom on "Two and a Half Men"), "Ann" has earned a good review from the New York Times:

      To put it as the plain-talking Richards might, this one-dynamo show — Ms. Taylor is the lone cast member — is neither a shapely work of drama nor a deeply probing character study. But admirers of Richards probably won’t give a darn. She was a brightly shining political star and an inspiring figure during the years of her renown, and Ms. Taylor is essentially just giving this beloved dame one more chance to bask in the spotlight.

      As a performer, Ms. Taylor also emerges from this two-hour pep rally smelling like a rose (a yellow one, let us say). In a Broadway season sadly deficient, at this late juncture, in impressive leading performances from women (not that notable women’s roles have been thick on the ground), Ms. Taylor’s lively, funny, humane Ann Richards looks mighty formidable.

      LuLu and I, plus a couple other Albany-area Dems, are planning to go sometime.

      We'd have a good time on our own, but a Kossack "Ann" meetup for a mutually agreeable weekend matinee would be even better.

      What do you think?

      A public option for health insurance is a national priority.
