The actress, who is the daughter of theatre impresario Peter Hall, will lead the cast of 'Machinal', reported Daily Star. Sophie Treadwell's play, which was inspired by Ruth Snyder's 1927 murder trial, featured Clark Gable in his Broadway debut when it last appeared in the Big Apple.
The new production will begin previews on December 20 and open a month later in January next year at the American Airlines Theatre. 'Machinal' hasn't played in New York for over eight decades but it has been staged a number of times across the world, winning a Best Revival Olivier Award in London in 1994.
