Masterful, Relevant, Intelligent, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you like gripping drama from start to finish, by a great cast, well-directed in a new version of Ibsen's classic. Good sound and lights.

Don’t see it if you are looking for something light, don't like to sit for 2 hours, though there is a 5 minute stand up break with a free beverage.

More information about An Enemy of the People on Broadway

Ibsen wrote An Enemy of the People in 1882 and premiered the play a year later. In the show, Stockmann works as a medical officer in a small Norwegian spa town, where spa baths are the main source of its revenue and fame. When Stockmann discovers the water is poisoned, he expects to be praised for saving the lives of countless future visitors. Instead, the government and citizens blame him for ruining the town's reputation, creating a schism between Stockmann and the residents and driving a conflict between ethics and the town’s self-preservation.

The last An Enemy of the People Broadway revival was in 2012, with Boyd Gaines starring in Manhattan Theatre Club's production. Strong last appeared on Broadway four years earlier, making his debut as Richard Rich in A Man For All Seasons.

Gold is in his wheelhouse with this fresh take on An Enemy of the People in New York. After winning a Tony for Fun Home, he earned his most recent Tony nomination for directing A Doll's House, Part 2, Lucas Hnath's sequel to Ibsen's most famous play.

What to watch for

  • That sounds familiar! In spring 2023, another Succession star, Arian Moayed, starred in A Doll's House, another Broadway revival of an Ibsen play adapted by Amy Herzog.
  • Amy Herzog isn't the only Pulitzer honoree to adapt An Enemy of the People. In 1950, an adaptation by Arthur Miller, a Pulitzer winner for Death of a Salesman, premiered at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre.
  • Ibsen’s earlier play Ghosts garnered hypocrisy and criticism. An Enemy of the People is a response to that event, with Stockmann and the play's action loosely inspired by Ibsen's experience.
  • The play is also inspired by the experiences of two other real-life people. One was a doctor in the now-Czech Republic who exposed a cholera outbreak at a local health spa. He eventually had to leave his town due to the public outcry against him. The other was a Norwegian chemist who questioned the cleanliness of a steam kitchen.
  • "Stockmann" is a family name that comes from the Telemark region of Norway. Ibsen was a descendant of the Stockmann family, and the character of Peter Stockmann is based on his uncle, another family descendant.
