Join our Twitter Party: ANN on Broadway
During our next Twitter party, we’ll celebrate Ann Richards’ life, legacy and lessons for the future as seen in ANN, the critically acclaimed new play now on Broadway.
Written and performed by Emmy® Award winner Holland Taylor of “Two and a Half Men”, ANN is the inspiring and hilarious new play which takes a revealing look at Ann Richards, the impassioned woman who enriched the lives of her followers, friends and family.
Ann Richards was a loyal wife and mother before becoming Governor of the State of Texas. Once in power, she worked to transform the state into one she wanted to live in. She truly believed that control lies in every citizen’s hands and that we all need to step up.
Join us to talk about ANN and Ann Richards. During the talk, we’ll have giveaways galore including ANN merchandise like a signed script, poster, hat and three pairs of tickets to the show!
We hope you can join us for what is sure to be a discussion as rambunctious as Ann Richards herself! It’s taking place on Wednesday, May 22nd at 9pm EST at hashtag #AnnPlay.

During this party, we’ll get right to the heart of and dissect the matters we care most about when it comes to raising children: life skills, eating habits, manners, expectations, mom guilt, sleeping and our obsessions with praise (too much? not enough?). We’ll learn what we’re doing right and what we’re possibly doing wrong, and we’ll all certainly come away with a new slate of practices and goals.
We have three FABULOUS moderators guiding our discussion:
Carol Cain from Girl Gone Travel
