Rebecca Hall

Rebecca Hall makes her Broadway debut in Roundabout Theatre Company’s 1920’s drama Machinal. Hall’s character Helen is listed simply as Young Woman in Machinal’s Playbill, which shows the audience the universality of her problems. Many women in that era felt trapped between two choices: work or wedding. Helen had to choose either marrying her boss who “made her blood run cold” or struggling to support herself and her mother (Suzanne Bertish) on her stenographer salary.
