We went to see High at the Booth in April. This is not a feel-good show, it was very serious subject matter dealing with addiction. Kathleen Turner in my opinion overacted a bit in most scenes, but her co-stars Stephen Kunken and Evan Jonigeit did an excellent job. Not knowing anything about the play beforehand, I would have appreciated knowing that this would have gotten at least an NC-17 rating had it been a film. The theater was lovely and very intimate, which made the attempted rape scene with full frontal male nudity all the more (for lack of a better word) shocking.The usher acted put out if required to show someone to their seats and don't impose on her by asking a question. I found this out when I ask to be directed to the restrooms. If you attend the theater on a regular basis maybe you would be interested in this show but if your a once or twice in a lifetime visitor I would see a different show. Very thought provoking but in no way an entertaining night at the theater.
