Enemy of the People at Circle in the Square

An Enemy of the People

Succession’s Jeremy Strong returns to Broadway alongside The White Lotus’ Michael Imperioli in a riveting new revival of Henrik Ibsen’s thunderous masterwork, AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE. A small-town doctor (Strong) 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, including his own brother (Imperioli), not only try to silence him—they try to destroy him. This strictly limited engagement is a new adaptation by Tony® Award nominee Amy Herzog, the playwright behind last season’s critically acclaimed reimagining of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. Directed by Tony Award winner Sam Gold, AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE comes to Broadway for 16 weeks only. The cast includes: Jeremy Strong and Michael Imperioli.
