VIDEO: Michael C. Hall Talks Broadway's REALISTIC JONESES on 'Today'
Michael C. Hall stopped by this morning's TODAY and shared that he is happy to leave the death-centered plots of his TV drama "Dexter" behind him and focus on his new role in the Broadway production of "The Realistic Joneses."
"(It's) good to get out of the death business," Hall explained. "You know, when you make an open-ended commitment to a character for a long period of time, it's nice if there's a lot of complexity and opportunity for evolution. But, yeah, it's nice to do something that is perhaps a bit lighter, and it's really great to get that feedback from the audience every night."

The Realistic Joneses, written by Will Eno, began previews on Thursday, March 13, 2014, and will have an official opening night on Sunday, April 6, 2014, at the Lyceum Theatre (149 W 45th Street).
The Realistic Joneses stars Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner, Academy Award and Tony Award-nominee Toni Collette ("Hostages," "United States of Tara," The Sixth Sense, The Wild Party), Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award-winner Michael C. Hall ("Dexter," Chicago, "Six Feet Under"), Tony Award-winner Tracy Letts (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?; August: Osage County; "Homeland"), and Academy Award-winner and Golden Globe-nominee Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny; The Wrestler; Salomé).
The production is directed by Obie Award-winner Sam Gold, who recently received critical acclaim for his production of Fun Home at the Public Theater. It has scenic design by David Zinn, costumes by Kaye Voyce, lighting by Mark Barton, and sound by Leon Rothenberg.
This new American play comes to Broadway after a critically-acclaimed run at the Yale Repertory Theatre in 2012.
