Manhattan Theatre Club will present the American premiere of the Almeida Theatre production of Ink, written by Olivier Award winner James Graham (Labour of Love, Privacy, Finding Neverland) and directed by two-time Olivier Award winner and Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (King Charles III, Enron).
The Broadway premiere will begin previews April 2 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre ahead of an April 24 opening as part of MTC's 2018–2019 season.
Set in 1969 London, Ink follows a brash, young Rupert Murdoch on the verge of founding the U.K.’s most influential newspaper. The show transferred to the West End last fall following an acclaimed, sold-out world premiere at the Almeida.
Joining Ink in the MTC season are the American premiere of Richard Bean's The Nap and Tarell Alvin McCraney’s Choir Boy.
The cast and creative team for Ink on Broadway will be announced at a later date. Bertie Carvel starred as Murdoch in the West End (earning an Olivier), with Richard Coyle playing rogue editor Larry Lamb.
