"An Enemy of the People"

An Enemy of the People
Henrik Ibsen, Adapted by Rebecca Lenkiewicz

The Cast of An Enemy of the People
Rebecca Lenkiewicz has stripped Ibsen’s original play of some of its extraneous moralizing and sidetracks for a slimmer version of An Enemy of the People that brings the nineteenth century story right into 2017 relevance.  Pear Theatre is now staging this 2008 adaptation where costumes denote a yesteryear long past but where language, circumstances, reactions, and accusations/counter-accusations smack of today.

For my entire review, please click to Talkin' Broadway:

Rating: 3.5 E

An Enemy of the People continues through November 12, 2017 at Pear Theatre at Pear Theatre, 1110 LaAvenida, Mountain View.  Tickets are available at or by calling 650-254-1148.
