The third season at the new Arena Stage has begun with Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins, starring Kathleen Turner, written by Margaret Engel and Allison Engel and directed by David Esbjornson. Red Hot Patriot is a 75-minute performance filled with anecdotes from the life of Molly Ivins, a feisty liberal newspaper columnist from Texas played brilliantly by Turner. If you haven't seen the show yet, make your way down to 6th & M Street.
