The American premiere of James Graham's publishing drama Ink, directed by Rupert Goold, opened on Broadway April 24. Set in 1969 London, the new drama follows a brash, young Rupert Murdoch on the verge of founding the U.K.’s most influential newspaper.
The twice-extended limited engagement from Manhattan Theatre Club, The Almeida, and Sonia Friedman Productions premieres on Broadway following a critically acclaimed West End run. Leading the cast as Rupert Murdoch and Larry Lamb, the editor of The Sun, are two-time Olivier Award winner Bertie Carvel (reprising his Olivier Award-winning performance) and Olivier winner Jonny Lee Miller, respectively.
