Kathleen Turner is Molly Ivins in Red Hot Patriot

Kathleen TurnerI’m not sure if Molly Ivins would be amused or appalled by this. However, Kathleen Turner will be playing Ivins in a one-woman play. Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins will open in Philadelphia in March.

I do think that Ivins would be appalled that any play about a Texas icon opened in Pennsylvania. As someone who watched Greater Tuna emerge from tiny venues in Austin, I believe that Texas’ characters can thrive on a Texas stage.
