“The Elephant Man” is one of the most iconic plays of all time. It was written by Bernard Pomerance, the Tony Award-winning playwright, and entertainer.
“The Elephant Man” was based on a true story and has been frequently revived since its 1979 New York debut. It examines the life of John Merrick, an extremely disfigured but indomitable man who becomes a celebrity in Victorian London, according to Page Six.
Sadly, Bernard Pomerance has passed away. According to reports, he died from complications from cancer at his home.
“Longtime agent Alan Brodie said Tuesday that Pomerance died Saturday of complications from cancer at his home in Galisteo, New Mexico,” according to reports.
Pomerance was originally from New York City and attended school at the University of Chicago. He founded a theater company in 1972 and went on to write numerous plays.
The Tony Award-winner is survived by his family. Please join us in praying for them during this difficult time.
