Rebecca Hall Will Make Her Broadway Debut in Roundabout Theatre Company’s ‘Machinal’

Rebecca Hall will make her Broadway debut as “Young Woman” in a new Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Machinal.

Written by Sophie Treadwell and directed by Lyndsey Turner, Machinal is inspired by the infamous 1927 murder trial of Ruth Snyder.

Full synopsis: It’s America’s Golden Age, a time of happiness, freedom and prosperity – or is it? For the Young Woman (Hall), a stenographer in the industrial, male-dominated world of the 1920s, life is nothing like she hoped it would be. Restless and unfulfilled in a passionless marriage and unwanted motherhood, she finds her only joy in the form of an illicit love affair. But when reality sets in and she must return to her routine existence, she’ll go to any lengths to regain her freedom.  A groundbreaking work in the landscape of American theatre, Machinal is a riveting look at the danger that can come from a life unlived.

Machinal will begin previews on Friday, December 20th, 2013 and open Thursday, January 16th, 2014 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).  This will be a limited engagement.

The full cast and creative team will be announced soon.
