The Elephant Man
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The true and riveting story of John Merrick, a Victorian Englishman doomed by his grotesquely deformed body to life as a sideshow freak until he is befriended by a famous young surgeon. Under the care of Dr. Frederick Treves, who educates Merrick and introduces him to London society, the so-called "Elephant Man" changes from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and clever darling of the rich and famous. But can Merrick's dream to be accepted as a man like any other come true? The Broadway favorite of 1979, winning both the Tony Award for best play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, The Elephant Man is a poignant and thoughtful journey to the core of human dignity.
