The star-studded revival of William Gibson's Tony-winning play The Miracle Worker is set to take the stage at Circle in the Square beginning Feb. 12. The cast, headed by Abigail Breslin and Alison Pill, is currently in rehearsal for the work, which recounts the story of Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan.

In anticipation of the production, two short videos for fans who might curious about some of the intricacies behind mounting and marketing such a difficult and beloved piece have been posted on the show's website.

The first video takes us inside the first day of rehearsal on Jan. 11 and includes interview clips with director Kate Whoriskey and several cast members.


The second is a short feature on John Dugdale, a blind photographer hired to create the production's publicity shots. Dugdale, who lost his sight progressively almost 20 years ago, began utilizing the cyanotype photographic process due to its relative ease of use and aesthetic quality.

It is this process that lends the haunting blue tint seen in the posters, and on the Playbill cover, for The Miracle Worker.
