Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins
10886 Le Conte Avenue Los Angeles
Two-time Tony and Oscar nominee Kathleen Turner sizzles in Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins as the brassy Texan reporter whose liberal journalism skyrocketed her to the national stage. From writing Elvis Presley's New York Times obituary to becoming the most widely-read selfproclaimed "pain in the ass to whatever powers come to be," Ivins – often described as a modern-day Mark Twain– made rabid fans and enemies alike with her sharp-tongued humor and unabashed political criticism. Written by twin sisters Margaret Engel and Allison Engel and helmed by acclaimed director and Geffen alum DavidEsbjornson (Neil Simon's Rose & Walsh and Bill Cain's Equivocation), this acclaimed production captures the red-headed reporter's indomitable character by weaving personal anecdotes with her colorful take on national politics.
