Iron Man - Rebecca Hall Set For Broadway Debut In Machinal

Iron Man 3 star Rebecca Hall is to make her Broadway debut in a new play that last hit the New York stage 85 years ago.

The actress, who is the daughter of British theatre impresario Sir Peter Hall, will lead the cast of MAChinal.

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 20 December (13) and open a month later (16Jan14) 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.
