Broadway tickets are a tad expensive for young people, but over at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, students and young adults ages 14-18 can purchase $20 tickets to Ann, written by and starring Holland Taylor, in an initiative spearheaded by the 2013 Tony Award nominee herself.
"We have been cooking this up at Ann for weeks, and now I can announce it," Taylor said in a statement. "Something in the spirit of Ann, herself, that she would love. Parents can come to the box office to buy their own tickets and bring their kids who can buy their own tickets. Groups of kids can come. Kids can come all by their lonesome. This is an unrestricted gift to the generation Ann cared about the most."
The specially priced loge tickets will be available for every performance, on the day of or in advance, and must be purchased in person. No identification is required. Tickets will come with a pamphlet called "Ann's Guide to Theater Etiquette," a step-by-step guide about proper behavior in Broadway theaters.
Directed by Benjamin Endsley Klein, Ann stars the Emmy and Outer Critics Circle Award-winning Holland Taylor as the legendary Texas Governor Ann Richards. The play takes the audience on a tour of the impassioned woman's life. The production, which opened March 7, will end its Broadway run on June 30.
