Kathleen Turner had plenty of support making her Broadway comeback on Tuesday - her 'Romancing the Stone' co-star Michael Douglas was in the audience to cheer her on.

Kathleen Turner stars as Sister Jamison Connelly, a nun and counsellor who has to treat a drug addict, in new play High, which marks her first return to the Manhattan stage since her 2005 Tony Award-nominated role in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"

And there was at least one friendly face in the crowd on opening night - Michael Douglas waved to photographers outside the Booth Theatre before taking his seat inside.

The pair has been friends for more than 25 years since starring in 1984 comedy "Romancing the Stone", its sequel "The Jewel of the Nile" and "The War of the Roses" in 1989.

Kathleen Turner's performances proved to be a hit - drama critic Joe Dziemianowicz from the New York Times praised her for bringing an "irresistible gusto to a star turn filled with virtues. Her work is credible, clean and honest."
