HIGH opens tonight, Tuesday, April 19th 2011 at the Booth Theatre. HIGH stars Kathleen Turner, two-time Golden Globe® winner, Academy Award® & Tony Award® nominee as "Sister Jamison Connelly". HIGH is a new play by Matthew Lombardo and directed by Rob Ruggiero.
HIGH also features Tony Award® nominee Stephen Kunken (Enron) as "Father Michael Delpapp" and Evan Jonigkeit making his Broadway debut as "Cody Randall".
HIGH explores the universal themes of truth, forgiveness, redemption and human fallibility. When Sister Jamison Connelly (Turner) agrees to sponsor a 19 year-old drug user in an effort to help him combat his addiction, her own faith is ultimately tested. Struggling between the knowledge she possesses as a rehabilitation counselor and a woman of religious conviction, she begins to question her belief in miracles and whether people can find the courage to change.
Kathleen Turner returns to Broadway following her Tony® nominated performance as "Martha" in the 2005 Tony Award® winning revival of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
