Kathleen Turner Makes 'High' Sore

Saw "High" with Kathleen Turner on Thursday. As always her performance was passionate and riveting. The play's message is not all that hopeful and is riddled with Catholic doctrine. It also includes a sudden manic nude scene that seemed sort of odd. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the show, even though I left feeling a mini existential crisis. It deals with a hopeless addiction of a horribly abused young man. It ends with without a message of hope. This is fine, but many

theatre goers will shy away.— at The Curran Theater.

The last time I saw Turner on stage was a few years ago with Bill Irwin in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe". I became an instant fan of her. She seems to fully give over her true self when she performs. She has so much passionate and commitment to each and very moment, that you simply cannot take your eyes offer her. And she inhabits this odd, but alluring deep, gravelly baritone voice that simultaneously sounds gruff and voluptuous.

High is playing at at The Curran in San Francisco through March 25th. If you want to still see the show, you have to hop on over to Minneapolis wear it runs for a few days beginning April 18th. The official web site of the tour is here: .
