London: Actor Bradley Cooper is eager to take his new production of `The Elephant Man` to Broadway next year after a successful stage stint in Massachusetts.

The 37-year-old played out the real-life story of disfigured Joseph Merrick, whose appearance and medical diagnosis fascinated the world and led him to become a societal fixture in London during the Victorian era.

The stint came to an end earlier this month, but Cooper hopes the production can find a home in a New York theatre, reported Daily Star.

"We`re going to try to do it on Broadway next fall. We`re going to try to nail it down and do a limited run," Cooper said.
