About this show

This Tony Award winner for Best Play tells the powerful story of John Merrick, who despite severe deformities for a short time dazzled Victorian London's elite. Found abandoned and helpless by Dr. Frederick Treves of the London Hospital, Merrick is admitted and under Treves' care is introduced to London society, evolving from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati.
