Local theatre company will host the renowned production for the month of May
A Public Fit Theatre Company is pleased to announce the showing of The Elephant Man, a production by Bernard Pomerance, throughout the month of May at The Usual Place located at 100 S. Maryland Pkwy. Directed by Ann-Marie Pereth and Joseph D. Kucan, A Public Fit is excited to bring the 1980 historical drama to Las Vegas residents and tourists.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to produce and stage The Elephant Man at A Public Fit,” said Ann-Marie Pereth, artistic director of A Public Fit Theatre Company. “As we continue to grow the local theatre community here in Las Vegas, it is our mission to provide productions that are innovative and provocative, which Elephant Man most definitely is. With an extraordinary story to tell, this play is not to be missed.”
The Elephant Man follows the life of the horribly, tragically deformed, John Merrick who exposes his twisted, disfigured body to the gasps of spectators in a turn-of-the-century freak show. Rescued by a young ambitious doctor, Merrick takes up residence in the London Hospital, finding comfort and society for the first time in his life. But has he really left the freak show?
The premiere showing of The Elephant Man is May 3 at The Usual Place and starts promptly at 7:30 pm. The production will show from May 3 until May 26, with both evening and matinee times offered. For more information and to buy tickets, visit apublicfit.org.
