About the Show
May 19 – Sept. 2, 2017
by Bernard Pomerance.
Glorifying the triumph of the human spirit, The Elephant Man has been hailed by The New York Times as a “startling act of magic.” In 19th-century England, John Merrick is born with a genetic condition that leaves him horribly disfigured. First viewed as a carnival sideshow freak, he is ultimately embraced by the highest levels of English society. As Merrick struggles to understand what it means to be human, he imparts on others a lesson about dignity and ultimately proves that true beauty lies in the eye – and the soul – of the beholder.
