Jeremy Strong Will Lead AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE On Broadway
Kendall stans rise up! Today it was announced that Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor Jeremy Strong will star in a new Broadway production of Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy Of The People, featuring a new adaptation by 2023 Tony Award Nominee Amy Herzog, directed by Tony Award-winner Sam Gold.
Produced by Seaview and Patrick Catullo, the production will premiere on Broadway in early 2024 at a theater to be announced. Complete casting and creatives 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.
Herzog’s work can currently be seen on Broadway with her adaptation of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House directed by Jamie Lloyd and Starring Jessica Chastain. Gold’s most recently directed Macbeth on Broadway in a production that starred Daniel Craig and Ruth Negga.
