Red Hot Patriot: A play about the legendary Molly Ivins
January 26, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm UTC-6
The hit play depicting the life of 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.
Note that there are performances on both Friday and Saturday night at 8pm.
