Roundabout Theatre Company has announced full casting for the upcoming Broadway production of Sophie Treadwell's Machinal, which will begin previews December 20 and open January 16. Broadway vets Suzanne Bertish (Breakfast at Tiffany's), Michael Cumpsty (The Winslow Boy), and Morgan Spector (Harvey) join the previously announced Rebecca Hall.
Machinal, which was first produced on Broadway in 1928, was inspired by the 1927 trial and execution of Ruth Snyder, a housewife convicted of murdering her husband. The story follows a young woman who, unfulfilled by marriage and motherhood, embarks on an illicit love affair with dire results.
In addition to Bertish, Cumpsty, Spector, and Hall, the cast will feature Damian Baldet, Ashley Bell, Jeff Biehl, Arnie Burton, Ryan Dinning, Scott Drummond, Dion Graham, Edward James Hyland, Jason Loughlin, Maria-Christina Oliveras, Daniel Pearce, Henny Russell, Karen Walsh, and Michael Warner.
