"...Graham’s portrait of that time — illuminated vividly by director Jason Loewith and 13 splendid actors — pinpoints a moment when rough-and-ready newspaper journalism ceased to be gleeful, turning instead into a grim search for the lowest common denominator. “Ink,” first performed in London in 2017 (and later on Broadway), is no rollicking descendant of “The Front Page,” Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur’s raucous 1928 valentine to Chicago newshounds."
"...Jason Loewith's bustling staging of James Graham's Tony-winning drama Ink, co-produced by Round House and Olney, combines a talented cast with titillating text for a thorough chronicle of Rupert Murdoch's typically rude 1969 takeover of British tabloid The Sun."

"...Director Jason Loewith, Olney's artistic director, keeps the pacing fast as a large cast, most playing multiple roles, appear and disappear on Tony Cisek's high-tech set. The projections designed by Mike Tutaj flash across a high, curved wall of screens: type, computerized images, scene-setting photos, and occasionally gaps where small groups of actors play their scenes live. The mainstage floor incorporates several concentric turntables, which keep propelling the action even when the actors are not themselves moving."

"...Graham’s taut script has the rat-a-tat-tat of a linotype machine knocking out one-liners, and the walls of Tony Cisek’s stark scenic design are covered with gray slabs of cold lead that Mike Tutah’s projections flood with Fleet Street dioramas and front-page dramas. A rumbly turntable scurries set pieces on and off, and Matthew M. Nielson’s sound design evokes the rolling thunder of presses down below."

"...“Ink” can be difficult to watch at times, despite its more uproarious comic moments. It is a reminder of how it can often be impossible to escape what is perhaps one of the biggest motivators of humankind—greed. This production will definitely make you think, and perhaps rethink some of your own life choices."
