Kathleen’s new play has opened in London’s West End and (unsurprisingly) her performance is getting rave reviews.  As the headline of one review puts it, “Kathleen Turner Rules!”

Big news!  Fresh off some of the best reviews of her career for the classic musical “Mother Courage and Her Children”, Kathleen is off to the West End of London for what’s sure to be a smashing production of the new play “Bakersfield Mist”.  Her co-star? The legendary British actor Ian McDiarmid! (who you might recognize as the Emperor from all the “Star Wars” movies)
Here are a few pieces on the new play:

Did you know that Kathleen has a very talented daughter who is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist?  Listen to that smoky voice…wonder where she got it…?  :-)

Unsurprisingly, the reviews coming in for Kathleen’s performance in the new Arena Stage production of “Mother Courage and Her Children” are raves.  The Washington Post calls her “an actress of epic force.”
