Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins

October 25, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Kathleen Turner image with TexasTwo-time Tony and Oscar nominee Kathleen Turner sizzles as Molly Ivins, 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 self-proclaimed “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. This acclaimed show captures the redheaded reporter’s indomitable character by weaving personal anecdotes with her colorful take on national politics.

Join Institute for Policy Studies’ Board member, Jodie Evans, for a spectacular evening to celebrate the power of women’s voices. Jodie is excited to weave three groups, as Co-founder of CodePink, Board Chair of Women’s Media Center and Board Member for Institute for Policy Studies, for this dynamic evening. This October 25th performance will be followed by a reception with Kathleen Turner and Gloria Feldt.

$150 for play & reception | $85 for play only | $100 for reception only
