The Broadway revival of William Gibson’s The Miracle Worker will close on April 4, 2010. The production, directed by Kate Whoriskey and starring Abigail Breslin and Alison Pill, will have played 21 previews and 38 regular performances at the Circle in the Square Theatre at the time of its closing.
The Miracle Worker tells the story of the young Helen Keller (Breslin), who became blind and deaf after a childhood illness, and the extraordinary woman, Annie Sullivan (Pill), who taught her to communicate with the world.
In addition to Breslin and Pill, the show also features Matthew Modine, Jennifer Morrison, Elizabeth Franz, Tobias Segal, Daniel Oreskes, Michael Cummings, Simone Joy Jones, Yvette Ganier and Lance Chantiles-Wertz.
This 50th anniversary production of the 1960 Tony-winning play began previews on February 12 and opened March 3, 2010.
