Tony Winner Renée Elise Goldsberry to Play Final Performance in Broadway's Hamilton
Goldsberry's portrayal of Angelica Schuyler earned her the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical.
Renée Elise Goldsberry, who won a 2016 Tony Award for her portrayal of Angelica Schuyler in Broadway's Hamilton, will play her final performance in the production today. Broadway veteran Mandy Gonzalez is set to replace her in the role beginning September 6.
Goldsberry's post-Hamilton projects include taking on the title role in the film The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks for HBO and playing a recurring character on the new Netflix series Altered Carbon.
Gonzalez originated the role of Nina Rosario in Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony-winning musical In the Heights. She has also starred as Elphaba in the Broadway production of Wicked, among many other credits. Most recently, Gonzalez has been seen on television shows including Madam Secretary and Quantico.
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.
The show, which had its world premiere at the Public Theater, features a book and score by Tony winner Miranda, with music direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Howell Binkley, and sound design by Nevin Steinberg.
