The Broadway revival of Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People, which began previews February 27 at Circle in the Square Theatre, officially opened March 18, and Playbill has photos from the evening.

Newly adapted by 2023 Tony nominee Amy Herzog, the staging is directed by Tony winner Sam Gold. The production is the second Ibsen adaptation of Herzog's to reach the Broadway stage, following her Tony-nominated adaptation of A Doll's House.

A number of famous faces were on hand for the starry opening night, including Rachel McAdams, F. Murray Abraham, Michael Cerveris, Alex Edelman, Morgan Spector, Richard Kind, and more.

The company is led by Emmy Award winner Jeremy Strong (Succession) as Doctor Thomas Stockmann, Emmy winner Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) as Peter Stockmann, and Victoria Pedretti (The Haunting of Hill House) as Petra Stockmann.

Joining them are David Patrick Kelly (Once) as Morten Kiil, Katie Broad as Randine, Bill Buell (Ink), Caleb Eberhardt (Choir Boy) as Hovstad, Matthew August Jeffersas Billing, David Mattar Merten, Max Roll (Good Night, Oscar), Thomas Jay Ryan as Aslaksen, and Alan Trong as Captain Horster.

Set in a small Norwegian spa town, An Enemy of the People follows Doctor Thomas Stockmann as he attempts to alert the public that the spa’s water is poisoned. The resulting backlash, borne out of society's desperation for financial preservation, examines the morality of public outcry and the struggles shouldered by whistleblowers.

This is the first production of the work to play Broadway since 2012, when Boyd Gaines led a revival.

An Enemy of the People features scenic design by dots, costume design by David Zinn, lighting design by Isabella Byrd, sound design by Mikaal Sulaiman, hair and wig design by Campbell Young Associates, production stage management by Rachel Bauder, technical supervision by Juniper Street Productions, fight direction by Thomas Schall, and casting by Taylor Williams Casting. 101 Productions serves as general manager.
