Want to get up close and personal with Rydal's own Bradley Cooper? The recent Oscar nominee will reprise his role as John Merrick in a revival of Bernard Pomerance's "The Elephant Man," Entertainment Weekly reports.

Cooper originally played the role of the severely disfigured Merrick in a 2012 at the well-respected Williamstown Theatre Festival in the Berkshires. Actor Philip Anglim was nominated for a Tony during the show's original 1979, and John Hurt was nominated for an Oscar for his role in the 1980 David Lynch film adaptation, playing opposite Anthony Hopkins.

The production is set for the fall. No details on the cast has been released.

Cooper has been on Broadway before, last appearing in "Three Days of Rain," alongside Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd.
