Rebecca Hall In Machinal
The Vicky Cristina Barcelona star ignites this gripping classic
Ever felt like a cog in the machine? This production totally gets that. Written by American journalist Sophie Treadwell and based on the sensational 1927 murder case of Ruth Snyder, Machinal is as gripping as it is dark. In this highly stylized drama, Golden Globe nominee Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) plays a discontented wife in a male-dominated world where everything is mechanized. Catch the starlet in her most standout performance yet. Lyndsey Turner directs. Orchestra seating.
"Though written in 1928 and ripped from the headlines of a sensational contemporaneous murder trial, very little about Sophie Treadwell’s Machinal feels dated."
