Directed by Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis, the limited engagement will play through Sunday, February 15, 2014.

This production was first produced and presented in July 2012 in Williamstown Massachusetts by theWilliamstown Theatre Festival, Jenny Gersten, Artistic Director. Bradley Cooper (as John Merrick),Patricia Clarkson (as Mrs. Kendal) and Alessandro Nivola (as Dr. Fredrik Treves) all appeared together in that production, also directed by Scott Ellis. The Broadway cast will also includeAnthony Heald (as Ross / Bishop Walsham How), Scott Lowell (as Snork / Pinhead Manager / Lord John),Kathryn Meisle (as Miss Sandwich / Princess) and Henry Stram (as Carr Gomm / Conductor).

Based on the real life of Joseph Merrick, The Elephant Man tells the story of a 19th-century British man (Cooper) whose severe disfigurement made him a star of the traveling freak show circuit. When the renowned Dr. Treves (Nivola) takes Merrick under his care at the London Hospital, he discovers that beneath this shocking exterior lies a brilliant mind and an unshakable faith. Soon all of Victorian high society becomes fascinated by Merrick, especially the beautiful actress Mrs. Kendal (Clarkson). But with his new life comes new complexity... and as Merrick's condition grows more severe, a "normal" life begins to seem all but impossible.
