Ink, With Bertie Carvel and Jonny Lee Miller, Extends Broadway Run
Previews of James Graham's new play begin April 2.
Manhattan Theatre Club has extended its Broadway premiere of James Graham's Ink through Sunday, June 16. Directed by Rupert Goold, the drama begins performances April 2 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Opening night is set for April 24.
Olivier Award winners Bertie Carvel and Jonny Lee Miller head the company as newspapermen Rupert Murdoch and Larry Lamb. The cast also includes David Wilson Barnes, Bill Buell, Andrew Durand, Eden Marryshow, Colin McPhillamy, Erin Neufer, Kevin Pariseau, Rana Roy, Michael Siberry, Robert Stanton, and Tara Summers.
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 and movement director), Ben Furey (dialect coach), and Julie McBride (music director).
Ink premiered at the Almeida Theatre before transferring to London's West End.
