Whatever Max Bialystock may say, they're actors, not animals! At The Elephant Man opening April 14 were two of filmdom's leading ladies — Demi Moore and Emma Thompson.

In The Elephant Man, Billy Crudup stars as John Merrick, a hideously-deformed circus attraction abused by his keepers and rescued by a scientist (Rupert Graves), who treats him civilly but makes him something of a faddish curiosity among the intelligentsia of Victorian England. Kate Burton is featured as a London actress who shares a special relationship with Merrick. Sean Mathias (Dance of Death) directs the revival, Broadway's first for the Bernard Pomerance play, which opened at the Booth Theatre in 1979.
