Full Casting for Upcoming "Elephant Man" Revival Revealed

Several sources are reporting that the full cast for the upcoming revival of Bernard Pomerance's Tony-winning play The Elephant Man has been revealed.  In addition to previously announced stars Bradley Cooper as John Merrick, Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson as Mrs. Kendall, and Alessandro Nivola as Dr. Frederick Treves, seven new actors have been announced as joining the cast.  They are, in no particular order, Chris Bannow, Peter Bradbury, Lucas Calhoun, Amanda Lea Mason, Marguerite Stimpson, and Emma Thorne.  Mr. Cooper, a two-time Academy Award nominee, previously played John Merrick in a 2012 production at Williamstown Theatre Festival.

The team behind the scenes includes Scott Ellis taking on the direction of the piece (he previously directed Mr. Cooper in the Williamstown production), Timothy R. Mackabee designing the sets and the projections, Clint Ramos on costumes, Philip S. Rosenberg for lighting design, and John Gromada designing the sound as well as composing original music for the piece.

The production will begin previews on November 7th in anticipation of a Devember 7th opening night.  The production will play a limited run through February 15th, 2015 at the Booth Theatre.
