“Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-Ass Wit of Molly Ivins” was the play we went to see last night at the Whisenhunt Stage of the Zach Theatre in Austin. It’s basically the story of the life of Molly Ivins, a Texas-raised American newspaper icon: columnist, liberal, political commentator, humorist and author. Basically, it was a one-woman show, starring actress Barbara Chisholm as Molly Ivins. The show/play was really a wonderful experience, ranging from the hilariously funny [as was to be expected in a play about Molly Ivins] to the contemplative and melancholy and to the heart-rending, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
More about Molly Ivins in another entry.
We stayed at the same motel as last week.
For supper, we went to the Fujian Grand China Buffet [as we both like buffet style Chinese restaurants] off IH 35. The food was well prepared and tasty, and there was a good selection of different dishes, but what both of us didn’t like was the fact that many dishes were not kept warm: lukewarm fruit-of-the-sea soup, to mention just one dish – is really not to my taste. And what also struck us as strange was the fact that you had to pay in advance, even before being shown to your table. We’ve never before experienced that in the US.
