Broadway's Ink Announces Full Cast to Join Bertie Carvel and Jonny Lee Miller
Full casting has been announced for the American premiere of Ink, written by Olivier Award winner James Graham (Finding Neverland) and directed by two-time Olivier Award winner and Tony nominee Almeida Theatre artistic director Rupert Goold (King Charles III). Manhattan Theatre Club's New York transfer of this Almeida Theatre production will begin performances April 2 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Opening night is set for April 24.
Joining the previously announced Olivier Award winners Bertie Carvel and Jonny Lee Miller are David Wilson Barnes (The Lieutenant of Inishmore), Bill Buell (The History Boys), Andrew Durand (Head Over Heels), Eden Marryshow, Colin McPhillamy (The Ferryman), Erin Neufer, Kevin Pariseau (Legally Blonde), Rana Roy, Michael Siberry (Junk), Robert Stanton (Saint Joan), and Tara Summers (The Hard Problem).
Two-time Olivier Award winner Bertie Carvel (Matilda) will reprise his Olivier Award-winning performance as Rupert Murdoch and Olivier Award winner Jonny Lee Miller (Frankenstein) will play the editor of The Sun, Larry Lamb.
Set in 1969 London, Ink is described as follows: "The brash young Rupert Murdoch purchases a struggling paper, The Sun, and sets out to make it a must-read smash which will destroy — and ultimately horrify — the competition. He brings on rogue editor Larry Lamb who in turn recruits an unlikely team of underdog reporters. Together, they will go to any lengths for success, and the race for the most ink is on!"
The creative team for Ink includes Bunny Christie (set and costume design), Neil Austin (lighting design), Adam Cork (original music and sound design), Jon Driscoll (projection design), Lynne Page (choreographer andmovement director), Ben Furey (dialect coach), and Julie McBride (music director).
