REVIEWS

NYT Critic's Pick

Directed with vaudevillian flair and firecracker snap by Goold...The first act abounds in adrenaline...'Ink' proposes that the sensibility that would generate today’s tidal wave of social media originated with early London-era Murdoch. At the same time, this production is steeped in a gritty nostalgia for the end of a chapter in journalism...The largely American, multicast ensemble deploys varyingly confident British accents. But it does well in sustaining the play’s propulsive momentum CONTINUE READING THE NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW
Four stars **** Goold’s characteristically flashy direction...Lamb, played with both increasingly aggressive intensity and a palpable sense of inner conflict by an excellent Miller pursues that goal with a vengeance...But Graham, and Carvel, know better than to make Murdoch a...two-dimensional villain, for that matter...Superb cast...If it’s too late to kill the beast Murdoch has nourished over decades, ‘Ink’ at least encourages us to reflect on its growth—and, if we’re fair, our own accountability in that.” CONTINUE READING THE NEW YORK STAGE REVIEW
Bertie Carvel won the Olivier award for this performance and he is mesmerizing - slouched and uncouth, his Murdoch speaks with the confidence of a snake oil salesman and you can’t take your eyes off him, except when he’s sharing the stage with the equally excellent Jonny Lee Miller as the unsung visionary, the Yin to Murdoch’s Yang behind the Sun’s success.Director Rupert Goold’s own vision for the play is an inspired antic Marx Brothers style romp complete with silly songs, choreography and set pieces incongruously piled to the rafters. The perfect metaphor for a guy who thumbed his nose at the establishment. CONTINUE READING THE NY1 REVIEW
