An Enemy of the People - 2012 - Broadway History , Info & More

This fall on Broadway, the political is about to get very personal. In this fast-paced, two-hour thriller, Dr. Thomas Stockmann (Boyd Gaines) discovers a toxic secret that threatens the health of his entire community. The doctor expects to be hailed as a hero, but his brother, Mayor Peter Stockmann (Richard Thomas), believes the information will destroy the town, forcing the men into a passionate confrontation of political will and personal ethics.



Gaines and Thomas play the clashing brothers in this scintillating, and often surprisingly humorous, new version of Ibsen�s AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR An Enemy of the People

1882 toxic tale more relevant (& punchy) than ever
8 / 10

Gaines, who often plays good guys and saps, makes the most of his sympathy capital. At first you feel for his character, especially since he has noble intentions. But then he claims, self-servingly, that “the majority is the most insidious enemy to freedom.” So much for democracy.

'An Enemy of the People' Is a Thrilling, Topical Evening on Broadway
10 / 10

Rebecca Lenkiewicz has transformed Henrik Ibsen’s 1882 play “An Enemy of the People,” an insightful work about the cost of free expression, into a coherent, topical, and thrilling piece that pokes and prods at our own moral fiber. Expertly realized by director Doug Hughes, the production succeeds on merit instead of flashiness or celebrity—with an outstanding cast of theater veterans led by Richard Thomas and Boyd Gaines—and causes us to question just how far we are willing to go to stand up for our beliefs.
