English actress Rebecca Hall will make her Broadway debut in the Roundabout Theatre Co.'s new Broadway production of Sophie Treadwell’s “Machinal,” producers said this week.

Previews will begin Dec. 20 at the American Airlines Theatre, ahead of a Jan. 16, 2014 opening.

“Machinal,” first produced in 1928, was inspired by the trial of Ruth Snyder, a Queens woman famously executed at Sing Sing for the grisly murder of her husband.

It premiered on Broadway in 1928 featuring a young Clark Gable in his Broadway debut.

Hall, now on screen as a brilliant biologist in “Iron Man 3,” received a Golden Globe Award nomination for “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”

Her film credits also include “The Town” and “Frost/Nixon.” On the London stage, she has appeared in “Mrs. Warren’s Profession,” “A Winter’s Tale” and “Twelfth Night,” directed by her father, Sir Peter Hall.
