Kathleen Turner’s Washington

Hey, isn’t that… smoky-voiced actress Kathleen Turner, spotted around town during the month-long run of “Mother Courage and Her Children” at Arena Stage, which closed this weekend?

The screen legend logged her offstage hours, according to our tipster army, at some local haunts:

For pampering —  Turner was a client at the downtown Celadon Spa. No word what services she’s used (the spa won’t say), but we hear she’s been gracious to staff and fellow patrons.

For bonding — The “Body Heat” star has been known to hang with cast and crew, post show, at Old Ebbitt Grill.  

For chilling — We’re told Turner enjoys the martinis at the unassuming Logan Tavern. And she’s been spotted hanging out (both solo and with a group) at Station 4, a watering hole at the Southwest waterfront near Arena Stage, a spot she also visited during her last stint in Washington, playing journalist Molly Ivins in Arena’s “Red Hot Patriot.”
