The Brightest Light On Broadway: Michael Imperioli

The actor, best known for his roles in The Sopranos and The White Lotus makes his Broadway debut in Ibsen’s play An Enemy of the People this spring

Most people recognize Michael Imperioli from The Sopranos and, more recently, from the second season of The White Lotus. But the actor started in theater. “I founded a company, Studio Dante, and produced my first play when I was 22,” he says. Though he’s acted in many Off- and Off-Off Broadway shows, “in all these 36 years, I’ve never acted on Broadway.” This season he gets his chance opposite Jeremy Strong (Succession) in a revival of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, newly adapted by Amy Herzog at the Circle in the Square. “It’s been one of my favorite plays since I read it in high school,” says Imperioli. “It’s a monumental classic.”
