Tony winner Renée Elise Goldsberry, who plays Angelica Schuyler in Broadway's Hamilton, will depart the acclaimed musical this fall, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Goldsberry will go on to film and star in the upcoming Netflix series Altered Carbon, inspired by the 2002 novel by Richard Morgan.

Goldberry won her first Tony Award this year for her performance in Hamilton. She has also starred on Broadway in The Color Purple, The Lion King, and Rent. She is a two-time Daytime Emmy Award nominee for her work on One Life to Live.

A replacement in the role of Angelica Schuyler is yet to be announced. Directed by Thomas Kail and 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.
