Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Machinal, starring Rebecca Hall, written by Sophie Treadwell and directed by Lyndsey Turner, began previews on December 20 and opened last night, Jan. 16, 2014 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway. Machinal is a limited engagement through March 2.

BroadwayWorld was there for all of the opening night festivities and you can check out photos from the star-studded theatre arrivals below!

The cast includes Suzanne Bertish as "Mother", Morgan Spector as "Lover", Michael Cumpsty as "Husband", and 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, Michael Warner.

Inspired by the infamous 1927 murder trial of Ruth Snyder, Machinal is a gripping drama by American journalist and playwright Sophie Treadwell. It's America's Golden Age, a time of happiness, freedom and prosperity - or is it? For the Young Woman (Hall), a stenographer in the industrial, male-dominated world of the 1920s, life is nothing like she hoped it would be. Restless and unfulfilled in a passionless marriage and unwanted motherhood, she finds her only joy in the form of an illicit love affair. But when reality sets in and she must return to her routine existence, she'll go to any lengths to regain her freedom. A groundbreaking work in the landscape of American theatre, Machinal is a riveting look at the danger that can come from a life unlived.
