London: `Iron Man 3` star Rebecca Hall is set 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 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.
