The American premiere of James Graham's publishing drama Ink has found its complete cast. As previously reported, the Rupert Goold-helmed production will begin previews on Broadway April 2 following an acclaimed debut at The Almeida Theatre and subsequent West End transfer.
The Broadway production is presented by Manhattan Theatre Club, The Almeida, and Sonia Friedman Productions at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. The play will officially open April 24.
Joining the previously announced Olivier Award winners Bertie Carvel and Jonny Lee Miller are David Wilson Barnes (The Lieutenant of Inishmore) as Brian McConnell, Bill Buell (The History Boys) as Frank Nicklin/Hetherington/Percy Roberts, Andrew Durand (Head Over Heels) as Beverly/Christopher Timothy, Eden Marryshow (BRUCE!!!!) as Ray Mills/Lee Howard, Colin McPhillamy (The Ferryman) as Sir Alick/Rees-Mogg/Chapel Father, Erin Neufer (Broadway debut) as Anna Murdoch/Diana/Chrissie/Apprentice, Kevin Pariseau (Legally Blonde) as Bench Hand/TV Host/Croiset, Rana Roy (Queen America) as Stephanie Rahn, Michael Siberry (Junk) as Hugh Cudlipp, Robert Stanton (Saint Joan) as Bernard Shrimsley/Brittenden, and Tara Summers (The Hard Problem) as Joyce Hopkirk/Muriel McKay.
Carvel will reprise his Olivier Award-winning performance as Rupert Murdoch in the Broadway production. Joining him as rogue editor of The Sun, Larry Lamb, is Olivier Award winner Miller (Elementary, Frankenstein).
Ink is directed by two-time Olivier Award winner and Almeida Artistic Director Goold (King Charles III, Enron). Set in 1969 London, the play follows a brash, young Rupert Murdoch on the verge of founding the U.K.’s most influential newspaper.
The creative team for Ink includes Bunny Christie (scenic 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).
