Miracle Worker

Miracle Worker

Opens February 23, 2012
Doors open at 6 p.m.
Set in Alabama in the 1880s, The Miracle Worker tells the incredible true story of Helen Keller, a young girl afflicted with both blindness and deafness, and Annie Sullivan, the extraordinary teacher who finds a way for Helen to learn.
The play centers on the pivotal portion of Keller’s childhood when Sullivan enters her life. As Sullivan struggles to reach Helen, she must also contend with the obstacles in her student’s family, namely a domineering patriarch resistant to change, a young mother who loves too much, and a son whose resentment of Helen bubbles close to the surface. The Miracle Worker is a riveting, compelling, inspirational story that has moved audiences for years.

QUOTATIONS TO HIGHLIGHT

BroadwayWorld.com:

“It was a brief, but definitely shining, moment at the end of a performance that left its audience breathless with the sheer artistry and the lovingly crafted stage effort brought forth from the brilliantly creative mind of the show’s director, Matt Logan, who has managed to make a show sometimes considered over-sentimental and hackneyed into something fresh and inspiring and so completely moving.”–BroadwayWorld.com

“…it should be noted that as portentous as [Patty] Duke’s debut came to be known, theater lovers still to come may very well consider Madeleine Hall’s beautifully crafted performance just as revelatory and just as noteworthy.”–BroadwayWorld.com

“[Artistic Director Matt Logan’s] confidence in staging contemporary stage classics…represents his true love of theater and his inventive eye for making the familiar seem somehow new and heretofore unseen.”–BroadwayWorld.com

“Hall and Landham’s performances are richly hued and finely nuanced, obliterating any preconceived notions you might have of their characters and, instead, each young woman creates a portrayal that grabs your heart and refuses to let go.”–BroadwayWorld.com

“Hall utilizes everything in her arsenal to bring six-year-old Helen Keller so vividly to life in front of you. Her performance is expressive and heartbreakingly genuine..”–BroadwayWorld.com
