They're divas, now and future: Rebecca Luker, Mamma Mia!'s Louise Pitre and lady-in-waiting Marissa Jaret Winokur, star of the upcoming Hairspray. All three attended the April 14 opening night of The Elephant Man.

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 first opened at the Booth Theatre in 1979.
