WARSHAWKI; John Waters' SERIAL MOM; NAKED IN NEW YORK; MOONLIGHT AND VALENTINO; THE REAL BLONDE; and Sofia Coppola’s THE VIRGIN SUICIDES.
Ms. Turner has also starred on Broadway in CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, for which she received a Tony nomination for Best Actress; INDISCRETIONS; THE GRADUATE; and WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF, for which she received a second Tony nomination for Best Actress. More recently, Ms. Turner joined the cast of THE KOMINSKY METHOD alongside Michael Douglas for the final season of the hit show for Netflix. She also starred in Dolly Parton’s Anthology series for Netflix entitled DOLLY PARTON’S HEARTSTRINGS and her episode titled THESE OLD BONES was nominated for an Emmy Award. She will next be seen in the HBO limited series THE WHITE HOUSE PLUMBERS starring alongside Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux and the feature film THE ESTATE with David Duchovny, Anna Faris and Toni Collette.
Ms. Turner made her debut at The Metropolitan Opera in LA FILLE DU REGIMENT. She has also starred as Molly Ivins in RED HOT PATRIOT: THE KICK ASS WIT OF MOLLY IVINS at Philadelphia Theater Center, The Geffen in LA and Arena Stage in DC and on Broadway as a nun in HIGH. One of her most challenging roles was Mother Courage in MOTHER COURAGE AND HER CHILDREN at Arena Stage. She has also starred opposite Ian McDiarmid in BAKERSFIELD MIST in the West End.
Ms. Turner has recently expanded her repertoire with the development of her first cabaret performance, FINDING MY VOICE, which debuted in Philadelphia in the Fall of 2017, followed by a run in London at The Other Palace Theatre, a tour in the UK, and an engagement at the legendary Cafe Carlyle in New York City. The tour will continue in selected cities across the country. In addition to her film and stage credits, Turner wrote of her many accomplishments and life experiences in her autobiography titled, "Send Yourself Roses: Thoughts on my Life, Love, and Leading Roles," which secured a position on the New York Times Best-Seller List and which she has recorded as an audio book. Her most recent work includes the publication of her new book, "Kathleen Turner on Acting." Ms. Turner is also a director and activist, particularly for women’s health and finds it rewarding to teach master classes.
