The Miracle Worker To Go Sale Next Week

That's right theatre fans. One of this season's most anticipated shows is set to go on sale next week.Starting on January 18 tickets will go on sale for The Miracle Worker. The play which first began on television in 1957 as part of Playhouse 90 premiered on Broadway in 1959 to critical acclaim. The play like the movie starred Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke as Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller and won that years Tony Award for Best Play. Both stars would both win Academy Award for the 1962 feature film.

This new revival which will mark it's first time on Broadway since the original Broadway production is set to begin previews at Broadway's Circle In The Square on February 12 with an official opening set for March 3. Headlining the revival is Tony nominee Alison Pill as Annie Sullivan and Academy Award nominee Abigail Breslin as Helen Keller.

Now while I am familiar with the story I have never seen a live production or any of the television or movie versions of this beloved play. I have been a big fan of Ms. Pill's for many years now and can not wait to see what she brings to this role. Same with Ms. Breslin who is a star on the rise. If reviews are good expect The Miracle Worker to be a big contender come Tony time. We will soon find out. Until next time theatre fans.
