Producers Seaview and Patrick Catullo have announced that Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award-winner Jeremy Strong (Succession) will return to Broadway to star in a new production of Henrik Ibsen’s AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE, featuring a new adaptation by Amy Herzog, and directed by Tony Award-winner Sam Gold.
The production will premiere on Broadway in early 2024 at a theatre to be announced.
Complete cast, design team and venue will be announced at a later date.
Set in a small Norwegian spa town, Ibsen’s AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE is about Doctor Thomas Stockmann, a man of principles who discovers that the spa’s water is poisoned. He naively expects the mayor to greet the truth with gratitude, but the town’s political machine will brook no threat to its prosperity, even if it means letting thousands of people be sickened. Doctor Stockmann becomes a whistleblower, and the public campaign against him mounts, setting up a moral battle between a lone truth teller and a society desperate for self-preservation.
