Michael C. Hall Sings From Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical
"Advertising Ruins Everything" and more songs from the strange musical project are now on Spotify.
As Super Bowl Sunday approaches, Skittles Commercial: The Broadway Musical barrels toward New York City for its one-day-only performance at Town Hall, benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
In one of the strangest turns of events in recent Broadway-adjacent memory, Michael C. Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) will be leading the cast of the alternative advertisement, which also features Broadway alumni including Stephanie Gibson (Cinderella), Raymond Lee (Groundhog Day), Lulu Fall (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), and more. Playwright Will Eno (Thom Pain) pens the book in collaboration with Nathaniel Lawlor (who also writes the lyrics), with music by Drew Gasparini.
The four-song cast album is now available on Spotify, but take a look below at a behind-the-scenes music video for what seems to be the show's signature number, "Advertising Ruins Everything." Our main takeaways are the badass band of ladies rocking out in the recording studio and the cast's impressive talent for singing while consuming enormous amounts of Skittles.
