Broadway News recently announced that Acting alumnus David Wilson Barnes '99 will join the cast of the production, Ink. After its critically-acclaimed run at London's West End, the show will make its Broadway debut in April. Barnes will star alongside Bertie Carvel as Rupert Murdoch and Jonny Lee Miller as Larry Lamb. 


Inspired by real events, James Graham’s electrifying new play comes to Broadway in the exhilarating Almeida Theatre production, directed by Rupert Goold. The play is about Rupert Murdoch in 1969 London when he buys 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.


Previews for Ink begin April 2nd at Manhattan Theater Club. For more information and to purchase tickets visit the MTC website.
