Williamstown Theatre Festival presents The Elephant Man, now running on the Nikos Stage through August 5. View new production photos below!

The Elephant Man by Bernard Pomerance is directed by Scott Ellis (WTF's The Understudy, Broadway's Harvey). The cast features Patricia Clarkson (WTF's The Ride Down Mt. Morgan, Pieces of April) as Mrs. Kendal, Bradley Cooper (WTF's The Understudy, Limitless) as John Merrick, the titular Elephant Man, Tony Award winner Shuler Hensley (Oklahoma!, Young Frankenstein) as Ross/Bishop How/Snork, Scott Lowell ("Queer as Folk") as Will/Lord John/Earl, Alessandro Nivola (WTF's As You Like It, Coco Before Chanel) as Frederick Treves, Marguerite Stimpson (Butley) as Sandwich/Countess/Alexandra, and Henry Stram (WTF's The Importance of Being Earnest) as Carr Gomm/Conductor.

From a desperate existence in a Victorian freak show to his days as the toast of London high society, the life of John Merrick, The Elephant Man, has fascinated the world for well over a century. Though his disfigurement brought notoriety, it was his unblemished inner humanity that most astonished those around him, compelling examinations of their own prejudices and beliefs. Shattering our illusions of normalcy, The Elephant Man by Bernard Pomerance weaves Merrick's tale into a parable on beauty, innocence, and human dignity.

The creative team includes Timothy Mackabee (Scenic and Projections Design), Clint Ramos (Costume Design), Philip Rosenberg (Lighting Design), Tom Kochan (Original Music/Co-Sound Design), Drew Levy (Co-Sound Design), and Charles LaPointe (Hair & Wig Design). Davin DeSantis is the Production Stage Manager.
