Sunday Critic: The Miracle Worker


By Michael Martin

The Sunday Critic spends so much time in over his head in storefronts, parsing new work and non-traditional stagings that it’s easy to forget, or under-rate, the satisfactions to be had from the traditional American well-made play. William Gibson’s evergreen The Miracle Worker is enjoying a near-perfect revival at the Bayou Playhouse under the loving guidance of Bayou artistic director Perry Martin, who began his career with a production of the classic showdown between teacher Annie Sullivan and blind-and-deaf “wild child” Helen Keller almost three decades ago. With a couple of audience-demand performances added to this closing weekend, you can just make it to Lockport if you jump in the car.
