'The Elephant Man' Broadway Review: Bradley Cooper Looks Great as an Ugly Guy

'The Elephant Man' Broadway Review: Bradley Cooper Looks Great as an Ugly Guy
BY MICHAEL SOMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
BROADWAY REVIEW

Bradley Cooper believably contorts his handsome self into the misshapen title figure of “The Elephant Man” and it is a certain bet that both he and director Scott Ellis’ fine Broadway revival will be leading contenders for awards this spring.

In the meantime, good luck in nabbing tickets to see this new production at the relatively intimate 780-seat Booth Theater. The show is a winning combination of a bona fide movie star giving a memorable performance in a good play, excellent co-stars, and a satisfying staging.

Produced twice before on Broadway, this 1977 drama by Bernard Pomerance is drawn from the true story of Joseph Merrick. A Victorian-era man suffering from a rare bone disorder that deformed him into frightening hideousness, Merrick is rescued from a side show by a doctor who shelters him in a London hospital.
