Peppermint, Alicia Silverstone, and More at Opening of Ink on Broadway
Jonny Lee Miller and Bertie Carvel star in the new drama.
Manhattan Theatre Club celebrated the opening night of Ink, written by Olivier Award winner James Graham and directed by Rupert Goold, on 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, Bill Buell, Andrew Durand Eden Marryshow, Colin McPhillamy, Erin Neufer, Kevin Pariseau, Rana Roy, Michael Siberry, Robert Stanton, Tara Summers, Ian Bedford, William Connell, Christopher McHale, Jessica Naimy, and Daniel Yearwood.
Ink is produced with the Almeida Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions.
