Three regionals get ‘High’

Lombardo play to preem starring Turner

Three regional theaters are joining forces to premiere Matthew Lombardo’s “High,” toplined by Kathleen Turner as a recovering alcoholic nun whose faith is tested in her efforts to help a teen drug addict.

The three-hander will bow at Hartford’s TheaterWorks in an engagement that runs July 9-Aug. 22, followed by runs at Cincinnati Playhouse Sept. 4-Oct. 2 and Repertory Theatre of St. Louis Oct. 13-Nov. 7. It will be Turner’s first time acting for the stage since the Rialto revival of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” in 2005.

Rob Ruggiero, senior artistic associate at the 200-seat TheaterWorks, will helm “High.” Ruggiero also staged Lombardo’s “Looped,” which opens on Broadway tonight. Lombardo’s previous Gotham credit was “Tea at Five,” the solo bio-play about Katharine Hepburn.
