HIGHER BY JEFFREY BINDER

   

World Premiere.

This World Premiere production will finally be seen the way it was intended: live on stage! Whether or not you watched the filmed production of Higher, you don’t want to miss this moving story of faith, healing, and hope. In this thrilling one-man tour-de-force, two worlds, lives, and times collide in one magical city filled with ghosts, saints, and whispers of the past: Prague. These separate timelines begin to intersect in strange and mysterious ways as both men grapple with their faith, families, and identities in this powerful story written and performed by Jeffrey Binder and directed by Kristen Coury.

Rave Reviews for the Filmed Version of Higher

Jonathan Greenfield

“[Higher] was one of the most magnificent plays and acting I have every seen. We come from New York originally and used to go to the Broadway quite often but this was the best ever.”

Mary Berens Hauger

“Jeffrey is a genius in every sense of the word! Thank you for bringing art to us in 2020. Gulfshore did it again.”
