Kathleen Turner Leads HIGH, Begins Rehearsals 2/28


Rehearsals begin on Monday, February 28th for Matthew Lombardo's new play HIGH, directed by Rob Ruggiero, starring two-time Golden Globe® winner, Academy Award® & Tony Award® nominee Kathleen Turner as "Sister Jamison Connelly", Tony Award® nominee Stephen Kunken (Enron) as "Father Michael Delpapp" and Evan Jonigkeit making his Broadway debut as "Cody Randall". Previews begin on Broadway on March 25 and the official opening is April 29, 2011 at the Booth Theatre on Broadway (222 West 45th St).

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?

This Broadway premiere follows a noteworthy collaboration of three American regional theaters. In July 2010, the play premiered at TheaterWorks in Hartford, Connecticut, followed by the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park in September 2010 and The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis in October 2010.

High is produced on Broadway by Leonard Soloway, Chase Mishkin, Terry Schnuck, Ann Cady Scott, Timothy J. Hampton, James & Catherine Berges, Barbara & Buddy Freitag, The Shubert Organization and The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis.
