THE FATHER
February 5-March 1
Alfred Molina stars as André in this deeply resonating, internationally acclaimed work by French playwright Florian Zeller.
Feldman’s take: Alfred Molina is one of the greatest actors of our time. We’ve been searching for a play to do together here at the Playhouse since I started a few years ago. The Father had a profound impact on me. I distinctly remember reading the script in my office and getting to the end and feeling breathless. I think it will be a performance that people will be talking about for years to come.

ANN
May 27-June 28
A no-holds-barred portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary governor of Texas, Ann (written and performed by Emmy® Award winner Holland Taylor) is an inspiring and hilarious play that brings the audience face to face with a complex, colorful, and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed.
Feldman’s take: In 2013, I saw Holland Taylor perform her love letter to Texas Governor Ann Richards on Broadway. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. Schedules finally aligned and I’m thrilled to have her bring her tour de force performance to the Playhouse. The show is delightfully entertaining for both sides of the aisle and essential viewing today for our polarized political world.

ANNIE GET YOUR GUN
July 28-August 23
Annie Get Your Gun brings the most revolutionary Annie Oakley you have ever seen to the stage. Directed by Sarna Lapine, this production will return to the book—rather than more recent versions from revivals.
Feldman’s take: With one of the greatest scores in the history of the American musical, Annie Get Your Gun will come to life once again this summer at the Playhouse, complete with a new orchestration for a country western band.
