Grease Live Star to Replace Anthony Ramos in Broadway's Hamilton
Ramos will play his final performance in the acclaimed musical.
Hamilton original cast member Anthony Ramos will play his final performance as John Laurens and Philip Hamilton on Saturday, November 20. He will be replaced by Jordan Fisher, who makes his Broadway debut on Tuesday, November 22.
Fisher starred as Doody in Hamilton director Thomas Kail's Emmy-winning production of Grease Live on Fox. A Hollywood Records recording artist, he released his debut EP earlier this year following his top 40 single "All About Us."
Inspired by Ron Chernow's biography Alexander Hamilton, Hamilton explores the life of the American founding father and first Secretary of the Treasury, as well as his experiences as an orphan of the British West Indies who immigrated to the 13 Colonies and helped shape the United States of America. The show had its world premiere at the Public Theater and runs on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
Hamilton features Tony-winning choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, as well as Tony-winning orchestrations, costumes, and lighting design by Alex Lacamoire, Paul Tazewell, and Howell Binkley. The set is designed by Tony nominee David Korins.
