Photo Coverage: HIGH Opening Night Red Carpet

HIGH opened tonight, Tuesday, April 19th 2011 at the Booth Theatre on Broadway and we were there to capture the star-studded opening night red carpet arrivals! 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?

HIGH is produced on Broadway by Leonard Soloway, Chase Mishkin, Terry Schnuck, Ann Cady Scott, Timothy J. Hampton, James & Catherine Berges, Craig Schnuck, Barbara & Buddy Freitag, Lauren Class Schneider, David Mirvish, Gene Fisch, Jr./Stu Sternbach, David Fagin/Rosalind Resnick, Jacki Barlia Florin/Michael A. Alden, Lizabeth Zindel, The Shubert Organization and The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis.

HIGH contains mature themes, strong language, and nudity. A parent or guardian will be required to accompany audience members under 14.

HIGH plays Tuesday - Saturday evenings at 8:00 PM, Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 2:00 PM & Sunday matinee at 3:00 PM.
