Directed by Rob Ruggiero (Looped, Ella, Make Me a Song), the play stars two-time Golden Globe winner and Academy Award and Tony nominee Kathleen Turner (Broadway's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Indiscretions, The Graduate and Hollywood's "Body Heat" and "Romancing the Stone") as Sister Jamison Connelly. She shares the stage with 2010 Tony nominee Stephen Kunken (Enron) as Father Michael Delpapp and Evan Jonigkeit, making his Broadway debut, as troubled youth Cody Randall.
Previews begin March 25 prior to an April 19 opening.
Here's how High is characterized: "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 (Jonigkeit) 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."
High was previously seen, with Turner and Jonigkeit in their roles, in a 2010 co-production between TheaterWorks in Hartford, CT, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park and The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis.
High is produced on Broadway by Leonard Soloway, Chase Mishkin, Terry Schnuck, Ann Cady Scott, Timothy J.
