    March 3, 2010: Language is exalted as the miracle maker of “The Miracle Worker,” the potential means of salvation for a knowledge-starved deaf and blind girl named Helen Keller. “One word, and I can put the world in your hand,” Helen’s teacher tells her with fervor. Odd, then, that the sadly pedestrian new production of William Gibson’s 1959 biographical drama is by far most effective when it is wordless.

    March 3, 2010: Perhaps the story of Helen Keller's early life and the teacher who helped her thrive despite extreme disabilities could be the basis of a great play. But The Miracle Worker ain't it.

    March 3, 2010: Circle in the Square's last tenant, "The Norman Conquests," was a superlative example of the enhanced scrutiny and heightened involvement that can be afforded by in-the-round presentation. "The Miracle Worker" is a less ideal fit; its staging in this first Broadway revival appears shaped more by necessity than by concept. Kate Whoriskey directs William Gibson's midcentury chestnut with sensitivity, if not with any startling new insight. But the volatile battle of wills between the young Helen Keller and her teacher, Annie Sullivan, remains dramatically and emotionally effective, played with conviction by Abigail Breslin and Alison Pill.

    March 3, 2010: The battle to illuminate the mind and heart of Helen Keller remains as compelling as ever, even if the first Broadway revival of William Gibson's "The Miracle Worker" suffers from inhospitable surroundings and a supporting cast forced to bellow its way through much of the dialogue.

    March 3, 2010: Bottom Line: The emotional impact of the story of Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan still comes through in this uneven Broadway revival.
