About This Show

Two-time Academy Award® nominee Bradley Cooper (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook) returns to Broadway in Bernard Pomerance’s Tony Award®-winning classic, The Elephant Man. Directed by Tony nominee Scott Ellis (The Mystery of Edwin Drood), this captivating new production also stars Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson (Pieces of April, Shutter Island) and Alessandro Nivola (American Hustle, The Winslow Boy).

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.
