Michael C. Hall is a pretty talented dude. From the nervous, rigid and quite sensitive funeral director, David, on Six Feet Under, to the calculating, emotionally-detached and socially awkward lab geek by day, serial killer by night, Dexter Morgan, on Dexter, Hall’s range on the small screen and seamless ability to disappear into a completely different role is remarkable.
However, if you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing him in action on stage, you haven’t seen him in his true element.
The reason his IMDB resume isn’t as long as one would expect, is because Hall spent his early years as an actor on stage in New York City. From numerous off-Broadway productions to starring in Broadway hits like Chicago and Cabaret, he is no stranger to the stage.
Last year he made a remarkable return to Broadway musicals as Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch and is currently back on stage in David Bowie’s Lazarus.
However, if you only know him as Dexter Morgan and were quite surprised when seeing him sing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert recently, here, just for you, are 7 other random times Michael C. Hall sang and killed it:
1. Midnight Radio (Hedwig and the Angry Inch)
Road Recovery benefit Dec. 2014
2. Chicago on Broadway, 2002
3. The Dexter version of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” on
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
4. David daydreaming on Six Feet Under
5. Cabaret on Broadway, 2000
6. Angry Inch (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) Road Recovery benefit Dec. 2014
7. Covering Bob Dylan’s “I’ll Keep it With Mine” w/Tits of Clay & Stephen Trask (Sept 2015)

With the cast of “Lazarus” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (Dec. 2015)
Check him out live, in person, if you can. These videos don’t do him justice. You won’t regret it!
