INK's Neil Austin Wins 2019 Tony Award for Best Lighting Design of a Play

Neil Austin has won the 2019 Tony Award for Best Lighting Design of a Play for Ink.

Neil Austin has designed the lighting for over 250 plays, musicals, operas and ballets. He is a double recipient of Tony, Drama Desk, Olivier and Knight of Illumination Awards, as well as an Outer Critics Circle and WhatsOnStage Award.

His Broadway credits include Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Travesties, Hughie, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Evita, Red, Hamlet, The Seafarer and Frost/Nixon. Other work in the U.S. includes Macbeth (Park Avenue Armory), Julius Caesar (St. Ann's Warehouse), The Night Alive (Atlantic Theater Company), The Sunshine Boys (Ahmanson Theatre), Red and Parade (Mark Taper Forum).

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!

Inspired by real events and a recent hit in London's West End, James Graham's electrifying new play comes to Broadway in the exhilarating Almeida Theatre production, directed by Rupert Goold. In its London run, The Guardian called it "riveting," and Time Out hailed it as "an incredibly brilliant stunner."
