“Elephant Man” marks a return to Williamstown for Cooper, who last had a stint there in a 2008 staging of Theresa Rebeck’s “The Understudy.” Clarkson — who was a member of the festival’s Non-Equity company in 1984 — was last at Williamstown in a 1996 production of Arthur Miller’s “The Ride Down Mount Morgan.”

Here Lies Love,” the brewing musical about Imedla Marcos from Byrne and Fatboy Slim, is already set for a full production as part of the Public Theater’s upcoming seasion. At Williamstown the show will be seen in a workshop staging at area museum and arts center MASS MoCa June 21-24. Alex Timbers (“Peter and the Starcatcher”) directs.

The two productions join a WTF lineup that also includes a new musical version of the film “Far from Heaven” and the latest play by Katori Hall, “Whaddabloodclot!!!,” among others.
