Two-time Golden Globe® winner, Academy Award® & Tony Award® nominee Kathleen Turner returns to the Minneapolis stage in the National Tour of Matthew Lombardo’s play HIGH. Directed by Rob Ruggiero, HIGH also features Evan Jonigkeit as “Cody Randall” and Timothy Altmeyer as “Father Michael Delpapp”.
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. HIGH explores the universal themes of truth, forgiveness, redemption and human fallibility.
HIGH had its World Premiere in Hartford, Connecticut at TheatreWorks where it broke all box office records, becoming the highest grossing play in that theatre’s 25 year history. The production then went on to play Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park and The Repertory Theatre of Saint Louis, again ranking amongst the top 5 most popular plays in those venues and continues to draw audiences across the country. HIGH was also presented on Broadway last season, where Ms. Turner was nominated for a DramaLeague Award for Distinguished Performance and Mr. Jonigkeit was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play.
