Ink Announces a Second Broadway Extension
Bertie Carvel and Jonny Lee Miller costar in the acclaimed London import.
Due to popular demand, Manhattan Theatre Club's American premiere of Ink, written by Olivier Award winner James Graham and directed by Rupert Goold, will extend for another week of performances, now playing through June 23. The production opens tomorrow, April 24, at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
Ink stars two-time Olivier Award winner Bertie Carvel (reprising his Olivier Award-winning performance as Rupert Murdoch) and Olivier Award winner Jonny Lee Miller as Larry Lamb, the editor of The Sun.
The play is described as follows: "It's 1969 London. 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 cast also features 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), Tara Summers (The Hard Problem), Ian Bedford (A View From the Bridge), William Connell (A View From the Bridge), Christopher McHale (Oslo), Jessica Naimy (Honeymoon in Vegas), and Daniel Yearwood (Once on This Island).
Ink is produced with the Almeida Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions.
