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.
4-time Tony winner Boyd Gaines (The Columnist, Contact) and Emmy winner Richard Thomas (Race, Fifth of July, “The Waltons”) play the clashing brothers in this scintillating, and often surprisingly humorous, new version of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People by one of Britain’s most exciting writers, Rebecca Lenkiewicz.
Tony winner Doug Hughes (Doubt, The Royal Family, The Whipping Man) returns to MTC to direct an exceptional ensemble cast that also includes Maïté Alina, Gerry Bamman, Kathleen McNenny, Randall Newsome, John Procaccino, Michael Siberry and James Waterston.
