TUESDAY 1/28-SUNDAY 2/16. Arkansas Repertory Theatre.
The Arkansas Repertory Theatre’s spring 2020 season marks the first under Executive Artistic Director Will Trice, and it’s a darling of a trinity. First up? “Ann,” an unblinking look at silver-haired, silver-tongued powerhouse Ann Richards, the 45th governor of Texas who ruffled feathers and raised eyebrows for her brash leadership style as much as for her status as a liberal running in ultra-conservative Texas. Holland Taylor’s play about the legendary (and consummately quotable) Texas governor, in The Rep’s production, passes the torch to Tony Award winner Elizabeth Ashley (“Russian Doll,” “Evening Shade,” “Treme”), with Michael Wilson directing. Completing the trinity: “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” and “Bye-Bye Birdie.” Get tickets at therep.org.
