VIDEO: Michael C. Hall Will Star in 'Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical' - Watch the Teaser Trailer!

As BroadwayWorld previously announced, this year, instead of running a 30-second ad during the big game, SKITTLES® is creating the first-ever commercial performed as a live Broadway musical.

It has been revealed that Michael C. Hall will lead the 17-member cast, according to Campaign Live.

"Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical" is written by playwright and Pulitzer finalist Will Eno in partnership with DDB Worldwide. The cast will perform the show one time only, in front of a live audience at The Town Hall in New York City on Sunday, February 3 at 1 p.m. EST. The show will also feature original songs backed by a live band.

Watch the teaser trailer below:

Tickets to the live performance are on sale and available to the public at Ticketmaster.com. Ticket proceeds will be donated to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS*-a nonprofit organization that awards annual grants that help men, women and children in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., receive lifesaving medications, health care, nutritious meals, counseling and emergency assistance. SKITTLES will also match this donation.

On stage, Michael C. Hall most recently starred as Thomas Newton in the London and New York Theatre Workshop productions of Lazarus (Drama Desk, Drama League, Lucille Lortel award nominations) by David Bowie & Enda Walsh, directed by Ivo van Hove and inspired by the novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis. Hall previously portrayed the title character in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, directed by Michael Mayer from the book by John Cameron Mitchell, with music and lyrics by Stephen Trask. He also starred in Will Eno's Broadway production of The Realistic Joneses (Drama League Award nomination) directed by Sam Gold and co-starring Toni Collette, Tracy Letts and Marisa Tomei.
