    KATHLEEN TURNER is to star in the upcoming one-woman show, Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins at the Suzanne Roberts Theater. The stage and screen actress (Hollywood’s Body Heat, Peggy Sue Got Married and Broadway’s The Graduate and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?) will take on the late high-spirited, liberal newspaper columnist who focused on criticizing the ‘good ol’ boys’ political establishment and mocking her Texas culture. We’ll also be joined by journalist, LOU DUBOSE, editor of The Washington Spectator and former friend and colleague of Ivins. The world premier play is produced by Philadelphia Theater Company and will run from March 19th through April 18th.
