From the production team that brought you last season’s smash hit The 39 Steps, comes the story of a kind soul in a grotesque body who is befriended by a free-thinking surgeon in 19th century London. Brimming with wit and humanity, the events follow John Merrick's ascension from "circus freak" to Victorian Society elites by way of his own intelligence and charm, and the courage of those who saw something within the “Elephant Man.” 1979 Tony Award Winner for Best Play.
“Pomerance’s tale showcases the triumph of a very human spirit, personified by the sensitive, almost saintly Merrick.”
