glad you got to see this. My friend was there when Karen got sick (glad she's ok), so I didn't get anything like your (fine) report from her.

Paul A. Tamburello, Jr. aka pt at large

Producing Artistic Director Spiro Veloudos Spiro Veloudos told me that Paula had five hours to rehearse...what a trooper... and what a pro.

Just skimmed your Red Hot Patriots piece. Kathleen Turner did it here. Frankly, I was disappointed in the script. I loved MI and think highly of Kathleen Turner, but would have preferred just rereading some of her columns. -- The play was a thumbs down for me.

I'm stunned, would have thought Turner would have been perfectly cast. I agree that Ivins' columns are rich and rowdy observations about Texas and American politics. The two writers of the play give us an idea of what motivated Ivins' funny and acerbic takes on authority figures who also happen to be politicians.

What a wonderful trip, seeing someone pinch-hit in that role! Molly was my Smith classmate, BTW. I knew her starting as a freshman because a high school classmate of hers in Houston (then a freshman at Wellesley) was one of my best friends all through summer camp, and she had made sure that I would look Molly up - turned out she lived in the house right around the corner from mine.

Kathleen Turner was perfectly cast---and she did a great job, with what she was given.
