    Ann

    This is an intimate portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary late governor of Texas, bringing audiences face to face with a complex, colorful, and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. Written (and originally performed) by Holland Taylor, Ann takes a revealing look at the impassioned woman who enriched the lives of her followers, friends, and family. The lady's played by the talented Libby Villari in this show, directed by the original Broadway helmsman, Benjamin Endsley Klein. And now, here's our review of the show.
    Through Sept. 8. Wed.-Fri., 7:30pm; Sat., 2:30 & 7:30pm; Sun., 2:30pm. $25-85.

    Robert Mueller's Greatest Hits

    Robert Mueller (as played by Hyde Park Theatre's own Ken Webster), with help from a rotation of local all-star actors, presents highlights of the special counsel’s two-volume, 400-plus page report in this staged reading – including, of course, the Mueller team's assessment of Russian interference and the president’s efforts to obstruct the investigation into his campaign. Conceived and directed by Mark Pickell for Capital T Theatre. (Also, we feel compelled to add, in the interests of full disclosure: FUCK TRUMP.)
    Through Aug. 31. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. Pay what you can, impeach if possible.
