THE ELEPHANT MAN Starring Bradley Cooper Opens on Broadway Tonight

THE ELEPHANT MAN opens tonight, December 7, 2014 at the Booth Theatre (222 W 45th St). The limited engagement will play through Sunday, February 15, 2014.

Two-time Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper, Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson and Alessandro Nivola star in Bernard Pomerance's Tony Award-winning play The Elephant Man, directed by Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis in performance at the Booth Theatre.

This production was first produced and presented in July 2012 in Williamstown Massachusetts by the Williamstown 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 include Anthony 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.

THE ELEPHANT MAN features Scenic and Projection Design by Timothy R. Mackabee, Costume Design by Clint Ramos, Lighting Design by Philip S. Rosenberg, and Sound Design by Drew Levy.
