    KATHLEEN TURNER Returns to Broadway in HIGH A new play by MATTHEW LOMBARDO Directed by ROB RUGGIERO

    HIGH will begin previews on March 25 and open April 19, 2011

    at the Booth Theatre on Broadway (222 W. 45th Street)

    Producers Leonard Soloway, Chase Mishkin, Terry Schnuck, Ann Cady Scott, Timothy J. Hampton, James & Catherine Berges, The Shubert Organization and The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis announce two-time Golden Globe® winner, Academy Award® & Tony Award® nominee Kathleen Turner will return to Broadway this spring in Matthew Lombardo’s new play HIGH, directed by Rob RuggieroHIGH will begin previews on Friday, March 25 and open officially on Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at the Booth Theatre (222 West 45th Street).

    The cast includes Kathleen Turner as “Sister Jamison Connelly”, Tony Award® nominee Stephen Kunken (Enron) as “Father Michael Delpapp” and Evan Jonigkeit making his Broadway debut as “Cody Randall”.

    The design team for HIGH includes Tony Award® winners David Gallo (Sets) & Jess Goldstein (Costumes), John Lasiter (Lights) and Vincent Olivieri (Sound & Original Compositions).

    HIGH explores the universal themes of truth, forgiveness, redemption and human fallibility.  When Sister Jamison Connolly (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.

    Kathleen Turner returns to Broadway following her Tony® nominated performance as “Martha” in the 2005 Tony Award® winning revival of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

    This Broadway premiere follows a noteworthy collaboration of three American regional theaters.  In July 2010, the play premiered at TheaterWorks in Hartford, Connecticut, followed by the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park in September 2010 and The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis in October 2010.

    TICKETS:

    Tickets will be available beginning Monday, January 24 online at Telecharge.com or by phone at (212)239-6200.  The Booth Theatre Box Office (222 W. 45th St) will open on Friday, March 4th.  Ticket prices range from $61.50-$111.50 with a special preview price of $61.50-$91.50 for performances March 25-April 18.

    Manhattan’s sleek new contemporary steakhouse, cityhouse, has opened its doors at the Park Central Hotel, offering a diverse menu of modern American classics and the best cuts of USDA prime beef.

    The spacious room is attractive with its minimalist black color scheme, including sleek tables and banquettes, sans cloths, set with eye-catching glassware and small vases sprouting calla lilies. The floor to ceiling windows offer sweeping views of Seventh Avenue and a colorful cast of tourists, local characters and all the Theater District activity.cityhouse interior shot compressed

    Dishes include a sublime lobstertini, succulent slow braised tomahawk short ribs (below)cityhouse's thai influenced braised short rib with crispy summer mushroms, potato au gratin and enchanting pistachio crusted diver scallops. Flawlessly prepared steak entrees from the cowboy rib-eye to the first rate veal chop are accompanied by a vast choice of outstanding sides from Capparelli’s  mac n’ 5 cheeses and  peerless truffle fries to the hen of the woods mushrooms and creamed spinach. cityhouse's Togorashi seared scallop with purple cauliflower espresso

    Service is very helpful and seamless and with a few tweaks, cityhouse could prove to be one of midtown’s more pleasant dining options. Lighting is muted and the soundtrack in kept low (but a less obtrusive selection of music would be more fitting than the hip-hot tracks played on our visit). Also, a tad of communication between the kitchen, waitstaff and menu would avoid, some minor disappointments, such as avocado, which was described as a component of the lobstertini and cobb salad, but , alas was conspicuous by its absence. The cobb salad was delicious, but purists be forewarned: it is a deconstructed version.cityhouse's colorado rack of lamb summer grits, fava beans, shriaz demi

    The grilling is an absolute high point and meats were properly aged 28 days, thus avoiding the all-to-often encountered gamey flavor so many steak houses are proselytizing these days.

    There is a terrific Mint Julep here and the always dependable Pommery NV Champagne offers the best choice at $16 the glass on a mostly American wine list that is fairly priced.cityhouse photo_sm_ps_new3n

    Desserts like the Key Lime Cheesecake and Lemon Blossom Vanilla cake are stylish and delicious, as is the iced Cappuccino.cityhouse's warm chocolate lava cake

    Conveniently located near Central Park and just steps away from Carnegie Hall, cityhouse is the ideal spot not only for power business lunches and chic dinners but also pre-theater dining with generous prix fixe menus for both lunch and dinner. cityhouse is the perfect place to enjoy weekend brunches and signature cocktails such as the refreshing bellatini, made from a unique blend of premium tropical juices, fine French cognac and a touch of ultra premium vodka shaken to a chill and garnished with fresh squeezed key limes.

    Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Sondheim on Sondheim stars Barbara Cook, Vanessa Williams, Tom Wopat, Leslie Kritzer, Norm Lewis, Euan Morton, Erin Mackey & Matthew Scott. Music & lyrics are by Stephen Sondheim and the production is conceived & directed by James Lapine.

    Sondheim brought us Into The Woods, Company, Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Sunday in the Park with George, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, West Side Story and Gypsy (to name a few). By writing songs that reflect the complexity of his characters, he has changed the way we define a great musical. But even though millions of fans know his songs by heart, few know much about Stephen Sondheim himself. Until now. Roundabout presents Sondheim On Sondheim, an intimate portrait of the famed composer in his own words… and music. Through the use of exclusive interview footage, you’ll get an inside look at Sondheim’s personal life and artistic process. An world-class ensemble cast performs sparkling-new arrangements of over two dozen Sondheim tunes, ranging from the celebrated to the obscure. Brilliantly directed by frequent Sondheim collaborator James Lapine, Sondheim on Sondheim  is a unique theatrical experience that will carry you to emotional highs and leave you with a sense of fulfillment rarely experienced in today’s theatrical universe.   Rating:A Major

    The Sondheim on Sondheim creative team includes David Loud (Music Direction & Arrangements) and Dan Knechtges (Musical Staging). The design team includes Beowulf Boritt (Sets), Susan Hilferty (Costumes), Ken Billington (Lights), Dan Moses Schreier (Sound) and Peter Flaherty (Projections).
