The Sunday Giveaway: Two Tickets to Ann on Broadway!

I was walking down 44th Street one night in the early 90s with a friend, when he stopped in his tracks and screamed, “Oh My God,”  (we didn’t say OMG in the 90s), “That’s Ann Richards!”  Before I could say “Who?”, he bolted down the street and weaseled his way in between her security guards to get a handshake and a sweet Texas hello.

I went home in tried to google her, but Google hadn’t been invented yet, so I asked around and quickly learned how strong of a politician, a public figure, and a woman she was.

So strong and so unique, that they could have written a play about her.

And eventually they did!

Ann, the new play about Ann Richards, the “legendary governor of Texas,” starring Holland Taylor, starts previews tomorrow and opens officially at the beautiful Beaumont Theatre on March 7th.

And one of you is about to win free tickets!


Well, let’s see . . . Fiorello was just up at Encores.  Ann is on Broadway .

Who’s next?

Bloomberg?  Clinton?  Blagojevich?
