    Caleb Eberhardt as the Character Hovstad in the Play "An Enemy of the People" on Broadway

    Henrik Ibsen’s “An Enemy of the People” is about halfway through its strictly limited run at The Circle in the Square Theatre having opened on March 18, the Sam Gold directed production will run through June 23. Caleb Eberhardt plays Hovstad, the editor of the town’s newspaper - a character integral to the questions posed by the plot involving character, power, public opinion, and the always nuanced-laden exploration of “the greater good.”

Hive Mind of the Democratic Establishment

Do you love hearing milquetoast mainstream liberal opinions in an echo chamber? Do you love hearing from aging folks who work in Academia and Albany’s professional upper class who probably make way more money then you and are insufferably smug? Do you hate hearing from people who have a variety of different view points from you, like let’s say a young progressive or maybe a libertarian? Then this show is the perfect fit! From running a discredited story against Alex Morse to carry water for the corrupt establishment democrat Richard Neal to more recently kissing the behinds of the Israeli government as they carry out ethnic cleansing in Gaza there is no shortage of the worst takes the Democratic Party (and the occasional establishment NY Republican) in the NY tri-state area has to offer. There are a few guests and commentators that I’ve liked for the most part (RoseMary Armao) but they are few and far between. I mostly listen to see what the viewpoint of the democratic establishment is on an given issue, and to listen to the letters to the panel where they often get trounced and then are either silent or stammer on as they try to find a way to sound “nuanced”. Wouldn’t recommend listening to this program unless you love establishment democrats/ politicians and their viewpoints.

Big fan

The show is great, Rosemary Armao is a treasure. I listen wherever I am in the world, helps keep me sane.
