"Sometimes I think my head is so big because it is so full of dreams."

Hamilton Armstrong, actor, director and teacher, quotes from Bernard Pomerance's play 'The Elephant Man.' He said, "In the early '80s I was a dancer and actor as well as a teacher. In an offshoot of my work with visually impaired and hearing impaired young adults, I developed an interest in attempting roles that had for the performer physical challenges, especially those depicting disabilities.

I was cast as Joseph Merrick in "The Elephant Man." This is a retelling of the life of this 19th-century man, born with the mutation known as Proteus syndrome. The play gave me the best reviews of my career, and I am forever enamored of this beautiful gem of a story."
