Rannells is currently performing in the titular role for a limited eight-week run ending October 12. Rannells originally took over the role from Neil Patrick Harris.
The Hollywood Reporter adds that this marks Hall's first musical theater role in over a decade – following his Broadway debut as the emcee in Cabaret in 1999 and his role as Billy Flynn in Chicago in 2002.
