Oscar nominee Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) will be making her stage debut as Helen Keller in a 50th anniversary revival of The Miracle Worker, with Alison Pill (The Lieutenant of Inishmore) costarring as Annie Sullivan, according to a statement from producer David Richenthal. The iconic play about a blind and deaf girl and the teacher who taught her to communicate with the world–played in the original production by Patty Duke and Anne Bancroft–is slated to open in March 2010 at Circle in the Square Theater.
