Jeremy Strong to star in 'An Enemy of the People' Broadway revival
The Ibsen play was last on Broadway in 2012, and the Emmy winner will return for the first time since 2008 in this show at the Circle in the Square Theatre.
Extra, extra! Emmy Award-winning Succession star Jeremy Strong will return to Broadway in a revival of Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People this winter. The play will begin performances in winter 2024 for a 16-week run at a venue to be announced.
Strong returns to Broadway for the first time since 2008, when he made his debut in A Man For All Seasons. Since then, Strong has become known for starring as Kendall Roy in the HBO drama Succession, winning an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Drama.
He will now play Dr. Thomas Stockmann, a medical officer in a small town, in An Enemy of the People. The play sees Stockmann discover a dangerous fact about a major town business, and he gets punished when he exposes the truth to the community. Ibsen wrote the play in 1882 as a response to his previous work, Ghosts, which exposed societal hypocrisy and earned Ibsen criticism of his own.
Directing the latest revival is Sam Gold, and Amy Herzog translated Ibsen's script from the original Norwegian.
This season, Herzog also translated Ibsen's A Doll's House for Broadway, currently running through June 10. That production also stars a Succession actor, Arian Moayed, alongside Jessica Chastain.
Additional cast and creative team members for An Enemy of the People have yet to be announced.
An Enemy of the People has appeared on Broadway 10 times before, most recently in 2012. Manhattan Theatre Club presented that revival, starring Boyd Gaines, at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
