**** Highly Recommended **** About 30 seconds into the performance, I realized that I’d never seen “Enemy of the People”. When I think that Henrik Ibsen wrote this play, which has so many recent parallels – think Love Canal or Erin Brockovich – in 1882, I’m in awe! The Goodman’s production is gripping, powerful and ultimately rather sad. Kudos to Director, Robert Falls. 4 Spotlights
