‘An Enemy Of The People’ Starring Jeremy Strong Breaks Circle In The Square Box Office Record

In the week leading up to Jeremy Strong’s Tony Award victory, Broadway’s An Enemy of the People broke the box office record at Circle in the Square Theatre, grossing $1,266,338 and topping its own previous records.

The production had already broken the previous Circle in the Square box office record of $917,008, held by the 2014 production of The River starring Hugh Jackman, more than 15 times. Enemy routinely sells out and posts weekly grosses in excess of $1 million.

The revival of Henrik Ibsen’s classic drama is in its final week of a limited engagement, set to play its final performance this Sunday, June 23. When it closes, it will have played 23 previews and 112 performances since beginning previews Tuesday, February 27.

Strong, who co-stars with Michael Imperioli and Victoria Pedretti, won the Tony for Best Leading Actor in Play. Enemy was nominated for for a total of five Tonys including Best Revival of a Play (Appropriate took that one).

Last week’s grosses for all shows will be released by The Broadway League tomorrow. The figures will not reflect any boosts in ticket sales from Tony wins, but could indicate some increased activity from nominations in the week leading up to the ceremony on Sunday.

Enemy producers announced last week that the production had recouped its $5.5 million capitalization.

The revival is directed by Sam Gold from a new adaptation by Amy Herzog.
