That's a Success(ion)! Jeremy Strong has won the Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play for his phenomenal performance as Dr. Thomas Stockmann in An Enemy of the People. The Emmy winning actor was crowned the winner at the 2024 Tony Awards on the stage of Lincoln Center's David H. Koch Theater. Strong beat out fellow nominees Michael Stuhlbarg for Patriots, William Jackson Harper for Uncle Vanya, Leslie Odom, Jr. for Purlie Victorious: A Non-Confederate Romp Through the Cotton Patch, and Liev Schreiber for Doubt: A Parable. 

This is Strong's first Tony nomination and win. Strong was last seen on Broadway in 2008 in A Man for All Seasons. Some of his most notable work has been in television and film, including his acclaimed roles in the hit series Succession and the film The Big Short.

Amy Herzog's new adaptation of the Henrik Ibsen play is about a small-town doctor who considers himself a proud, upstanding member of his close-knit community. When he discovers a catastrophe that risks the lives of everyone in town, he raises the alarm. But he is shaken to his core when those in power not only try to silence him—they try to destroy him.
