The Elephant Man Tickets

Two-time Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper stars in Bernard Pomerance's Tony Award-winning classic, The Elephant Man, based on the real life of Joseph Merrick, a 19th century British man who became a star of the traveling freak show circuit. When a renowned doctor, played by Alessandro Nivola, takes Merrick under his care at the London Hospital, he is astonished by Merrick’s brilliant intelligence and unshakable faith. Soon all of Victorian high society becomes fascinated by Merrick, especially a beautiful actress who is played by Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson. But with Merrick's new life comes new complexity… and a "normal” existence begins to seem all but impossible.
