Bradley Cooper Confirmed For West End Run Of The Elephant Man
Hollywood A-lister set to be the hottest ticket of 2015 in London...
Prepare for a stampede to the box office of the Theatre Royal Haymarket with the news that Bradley Cooper will be starring in a production of The Elephant Man there.
Yep, B-Coop is set to reprise his role as John Merrick - for which he has earned rave reviews on Broadway - in old London town for 12 weeks from 19 May.
His co-stars Patricia Clarkson and Alessandro Nivola will also be making the trip across the Atlantic with the show.
The 40-year-old movie hunk said in a statement: "Never did we think we would have the privilege to perform this show on Broadway, let alone in London. I'm honoured that Alessandro, Patricia, the entire company and I have the opportunity to continue to tell his story."
The play is based on the real-life story of Merrick, a deformed man who became a celebrity in 19th century Britain.
