About An Enemy of the People on Broadway

See Succession's Jeremy Strong headline the latest Broadway revival of An Enemy of the People, Henrik Ibsen's 1882 drama newly adapted by Amy Herzog. Check back for information on An Enemy of the People tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

An Enemy of the People is a play about Dr. Thomas Stockmann, a medical officer in a small Norwegian spa town. Upon learning the water used in the spa baths, a major town business, is contaminated, he publishes an article exposing the truth. But instead of receiving gratitude for protecting his fellow townsfolk, like he expects, he instead becomes the target of a campaign against him in the name of preserving the town's reputation and prosperity.

Ibsen wrote An Enemy of the People in response to his previous play, Ghosts. In that play, he exposed moral hypocrisy in his society and was criticized. Stockmann is in some ways a stand-in for Ibsen, with the events of An Enemy of the People loosely inspired by Ibsen's own life.

Since its 1883 premiere in Norway, An Enemy of the People has been produced and adapted numerous times. The show has appeared 10 previous times on Broadway alone, the latest being in 2012 with Boyd Gaines in the title role.

Now, Jeremy Strong steps into the role of Stockmann, returning to Broadway for the first time since his 2008 debut in A Man For All Seasons. Since then, he has achieved global fame for starring as Kendall Roy on the HBO drama Succession for all four of its seasons. He won an Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award for his performance, and his other acclaimed credits include the films Zero Dark Thirty, Molly's Game, and The Big Short.

This revival of An Enemy of the People on Broadway exhibits parallels with A Doll's House, another Ibsen revival from spring 2023. Both feature Succession stars — A Doll's House starred Arian Moayed as Torvald Helmer — and are adapted by Amy Herzog, the Pulitzer-nominated playwright of 4000 Miles.
