Kathleen Turner Returns to Broadway

A new play opened on Broadway last night at the Booth Theatre that brings us the return to the stage of Kathleen Turner. This play, from what I've read, reminds us why Kathleen Turner is a star. The play is called High and is written by Matthew Lombardo, with direction from Rob Ruggiero. While the writing is, from all accounts, formulaic and predictable and the dialogue is, to put it politely, not as snappy as it could be, Ms. Turner is the star here. Her performance is well worth the price of admission and will almost certainly garner her the third Tony nomination of her career. (As a side note, David Gallo's sets also got some favorable attention in the reviews -- never a bad thing for a designer!)
