LONDON — Bradley Cooper is swapping Broadway for London’s West End.

Producers announced Friday that a Cooper-led production of “The Elephant Man” will open in London in May.

The actor – a three-time Academy Award nominee, most recently for “American Sniper” – has won praise for his performance as John Merrick, an extremely disfigured man who becomes a celebrity.

The current production at New York’s Booth Theatre closes Feb. 21. The play will run at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket from May 19 to Aug. 8.
