Directed by Derek Van Barham, Miracle! will play May 14 through July 12 at Mary's Attic in Chicago. According to the company, Miracle! "tells story of Helen Stellar, a young deaf and blind drag queen who loves to perform under the watchful eye of her drag mother who just happens to be her biological father Crystal Pain. Crystal is owner of The Brass Connection, an old school drag club where the performers are just like any other normal family crazy as hell. When the state assigns Annie Sullivan to teach Helen to better communicate, all hell breaks loose and we soon discover that Helen is the most normal of all of the inhabitants of The Brass Connection. Miracle! is about family (biological and chosen), a father and son, gay and lesbian subculture and finding your voice."

Savage is a nationally syndicated sex advice columnist, author and theatre director.
