Among the glitterati at the April 14 opening of The Elephant Man were Melissa Errico (with hubby Patrick McEnroe) and Patrick Wilson. Errico is set to star in the French musical Amour next season, while Wilson is playing Curley in the fresh-on-the-boards revival of Oklahoma!.

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.
