Studio Tenn’s season continues at The Factory in Franklin with the Broadway classic “The Elephant Man.” The show opened on Thursday, February 16 and run through February 26.
One of the most famous human prodigies of all time, Joseph Merrick has long been the subject of books, film and theatre. Better known as “The Elephant Man,” the story of Merrick has ushered inspiration and heart-wrenching performances for centuries.
Making its Broadway debut in 1979, Bernard Pomerance’s “The Elephant Man” is based in large from Sir Frederick Treves’ book “The Elephant Man and Other Reminiscences.”
Studio Tenn’s production of “The Elephant Man” follows the amazing transformation Merrick faced, pulling the heartstrings of audiences everywhere by conveying tragedy and inner-beauty through a powerful blend of craftsmanship and drama.
In the video below, Matt Logan talks about two facades and two worlds that are colliding as John Merrick was in two worlds, both of which he had to be protected.
“I believe the Elephant Man brings an important narrative that we really need right now, says Matt Logan, it’s so easy to box people in, to sorta feel that you understand them, I got you, I know what you are and yet personally we all struggle to be seen and we all struggle to be understood and to be heard.”
“The Elephant Man” will run February 16 through 26, 2017 at the Jamison Theater in The Factory at Franklin. For tickets, visit the Studio Tenn website or call (615) 541-8200.
