Her Hand’s on the Gavel / Her Foot’s in the Door

Emmy Award® winner Holland Taylor (“The Practice,” “Two and a Half Men,” Ann) and Theatre World Award winner Ana Villafañe (On Your Feet) star as two congresswomen, generations apart. From Congressional aide, turned playwright Mario Correa and Tony Award®-winning director Diane Paulus (Jagged Little Pill) a world premiere play about power, politics, and the perilous path to progress.

N/A is a whip-smart battle of wills — and wits — between N, the first woman Speaker of the House, and A, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Inspired by real people and events, this riveting two-hander illuminates the person whom many consider the most powerful woman in American history… and the once-in-a-generation political talent who defied her.

N/A has a runtime of 80 minutes with no intermission.

Holland Taylor

is N

Holland Taylor is an Emmy-winning and Tony-nominated actress and playwright who has been a regular fixture of stage and screen for over five decades. She currently appears in the hit AppleTV+ series “The Morning Show” and was recently seen in a recurring role in Showtime’s “Billions”. Holland won an Emmy® Award for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 1999 for her groundbreaking performance as ‘Judge Roberta Kittleson’ on ABC’s legal drama “The Practice”. She has received a grand total of eight Emmy® nominations including another for “The Practice”, one for her guest appearance on the comedy series, “The Lot”, and an incredible four nods for her inspired work on CBS’s #1 sitcom, “Two and A Half Men”. Her most recent nomination was for Ryan Murphy’s global hit, “Hollywood”. Her countless television credits also include the classic comedy “Bosom Buddies” starring Tom Hanks, the landmark series “The L Word”, NBC’s sitcom “The Naked Truth”, and recently David E. Kelley’s “Mr. Mercedes”, based on a series of novels by Stephen King. She also starred in two auspicious Norman Lear projects: “The Powers That Be”; and “Guess Who Died”. In 2021 she starred in Netflix’s “The Chair”, opposite Sandra Oh and Jay Duplass. On the feature side, Holland can be seen in Bill & Ted Face the Music, the latest installment in the cult classic film series, in which she stars as ‘The Great Leader’. That same year, she co-starred in Netflix’s hugely popular To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. Her memorable film roles include Legally Blonde, Peter Weir’s The Truman Show starring Jim Carrey, One Fine Day with George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer, George Of The Jungle, Baby Mama starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the classics Romancing The Stone and Jewel Of The Nile, To Die For starring Nicole Kidman, Next Stop Wonderland, Happy Accidents, Spy Kids 2 & 3, Keeping The Faith, Gloria Bell, and Jay Roach’s Bombshell. In June 2020, PBS’s Great Performances aired a filmed version of Holland’s unforgettable one-woman play, Ann, based on the late Texas Governor Ann Richards, which Holland wrote and starred in on tour and on Broadway, receiving a 2013 Tony® Award nomination for ‘Leading Actress in a Play’. For Ann’s Broadway engagement at Lincoln Center’s Vivian Beaumont Theater, Holland also received Drama Desk and Drama League nominations, and the Outer Circle Critics Award for Best Solo Performance. A stage veteran, Holland last appeared on Broadway in 2016 opposite Nathan Lane in the Tony®-nominated revival of The Front Page. She made her Broadway debut in 1965 in the play The Devils with Anne Bancroft and holds the distinction of appearing in the historic Broadway flop, Moose Murders— having taken over for Eve Aarden during previews a mere week before opening (and closing). Her New York stage performances also include David Lindsay Abaire’s dark comedy Ripcord at Manhattan Theatre Club; ‘Bess’ in Breakfast with Les and Bess; and the original productions of Butley, and A.R. Gurney’s The Cocktail Hour. In Los Angeles, she has performed in Kindertransport, and Yasmina Reza’s The Unexpected Man at the Geffen. Holland was a dedicated student of Stella Adler and has given talks about the work and cultural contribution of this great teacher.
