It is not an easy task to take facts about an actual person’s life and present them in a way that does not sound cold or analytical. I imagine it would be even more difficult if you had to use actual letters from the subject’s life, but writer David Rambo took on the challenge and excelled. “The Lady With All The Answers” is a sweet, emotionally candid look at the life of Ann Landers.

Mimi Kennedy plays Landers as an endearingly, warm woman. Her character breaks the proverbial fourth wall and lets the audience right into Landers’ life.

An unusual take on the genre for which Rambo should also be applauded, it mirrors the relationship that the advice columnist shared with her readers and makes for a very entertaining evening.
