About An Enemy of the People on Broadway

Multi-award-winning Hollywood star Jeremy Strong will be back on Broadway for 16 weeks only in winter 2024, leading a revival of Henrik Ibsen's acclaimed drama An Enemy of the People. Be among the first people to secure your seats, and set an alert for An Enemy of the People tickets on TodayTix.

He may play "an enemy of the people," but Jeremy Strong's return to Broadway is exactly what the people want. See the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning Succession star on the big stage for the first time since 2008 — and since playing Kendall Roy on the HBO hit made him a household name. He takes on the iconic role of Dr. Thomas Stockmann, who exposes contaminated water in his town and becomes the target of public hatred.

Strong is just one member of a celebrated team that includes Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Amy Herzog (4000 Miles) and Tony Award-winning director Sam Gold (Fun Home). Don't miss your chance to see the work of three greats for a strictly limited time this winter — you'll be the enemy of the people if you do.

Tell me more

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.
