The Miracle Worker

The story of Helen Keller has always fascinated me. I remember watching the movie in elementary school and reading the book. Everytime we're near Tuscumbia I always wish we had time to stop and see her house, Ivy Green.

Doc surprised me a few weeks ago with tickets to see "The Miracle Worker" at New Stage Theatre. We went last night and it was so, so good! I wish I was half as talented as the actors.
Here's the 411 from New Stage's website: Trapped in a secret, silent world, Helen is violent and spoiled. Only her teacher realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. What awaits Helen outside the doors of her dark world?
