Turner to ‘Kick Ass’ in Philly

Actress will play journo in one-woman show

Kathleen Turner will topline the world preem of one-woman show “Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins” at the Philadelphia Theater Company in spring.

David Esbjornson (“The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?”) directs the play by journalist-authors Margaret and Allison Engel.

Solo outing is based on the writings of Ivins, the Texas political journo who died in 2008. Turner previously played the part in a workshop and reading of “Red Hot” produced at Washington, D.C.’s, Arena Stage over the summer.

Actress’ prior stage credits include Broadway productions of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” as well as a recent Off Broadway staging of “Crimes of the Heart” that she directed.

Red Hot” replaces a previously skedded PTC production of “Mauritius,” which PTC reps say was postponed when the scheduling window for “Red Hot” opened. Show plays Philly March 19-April 18.
