Why Jeremy Strong Is “Terrified” to Return to Broadway –

Jeremy Strong is set to return to Broadway this winter in a new translation of Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, in which he takes on the lead role of Dr. Thomas Stockmann. The story centers around Dr. Stockmann’s attempts to warn the townspeople about contaminated spa waters, despite facing pushback from those who fear the truth will ruin the town’s economy. Strong, best known for his award-winning turn as Kendall Roy on Succession, views the role as a “reluctant hero.” The play, which begins previews at the Circle in the Square Theatre on Feb. 27, 2024, is directed by Sam Gold and ties into modern politics and global challenges.
