Manhattan Theatre Club, the Almeida Theatre and Sonia Friedman Productions present the American premiere of London's smash hit play Ink, written by Olivier Award winner James Graham and directed by Tony Award nominee and two-time Olivier Award winner Rupert Goold. Previews begin at Broadway's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on April 2, 2019, before an official opening on April 24.

Synopsis: "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!"

Casting and creative team information for the Broadway transfer will be announced at a later date. However, the London production starred Tony Award nominee Bertie Carvel in an Olivier Award-winning performance as Rupert Murdoch alongside Richard Coyle as Larry Lamb.
