On Wednesday, March 16, stage and screen star Kathleen Turner joined playwright Matthew Lombardo, director Rob Ruggiero, and castmates Stephen Kunken and Evan Jonigkeit to discuss the new Broadway play High, which begins previews at the Booth Theatre on March 25, with an official opening scheduled for April 19.

In the play, Sister Jamison Connolly (Turner) agrees to sponsor Cody (Jonigkeit), a 19-year-old drug user in an effort to help him combat his addiction. 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.

The play premiered at TheaterWorks in Hartford, Connecticut in July 2010, followed by runs at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park and The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis.
