The Broadway theater and exact dates for the revival have not yet been announced.
Strong, who is an Emmy and Golden Globe winner for his role as Kendall Roy on Succession, began his career off-Broadway and previously appeared on Broadway in the 2008 revival of A Man For All Seasons, starring Frank Langella.
He recently starred alongside Anne Hathaway and Anthony Hopkins in James Gray’s Armageddon Time and has previously appeared in Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7, as Vinny Daniel in Adam McKay’s The Big Short, in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln and in Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty. Upcoming projects include starring in and executive producing Tobias Lindholm’s series The Best of Us, about 9/11 first responders, and a planned series about 737 Max planes in development at Amazon Studios.
Ibsen’s 1882 play, An Enemy of the People, takes place in a small Norwegian town and centers on Doctor Thomas Stockmann, who discovers that the town spa’s water is poisoned. Stockmann tries to raise alarms about the situation but finds that members of the town are against spreading the news for fear that it will impact the local economy.
The play has been revived several times on Broadway, including most recently in 2012, in a production starring Boyd Gaines.
This revival is produced by Seaview, behind A Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window and Parade, and Patrick Catullo.
