Hamilton announces new cast members
The London production of Hamilton has announced its first cast change, as it approaches its second year in the West End.
Allyson Ava-Brown, Dom Hartley-Harris and Jon Robyns will join the cast as Angelica Schyler, George Washington and King George III respectively, when the cast changes come into effect on December 3.
This means Rachel John, Obioma Ugoala and Michael Jibson – who won an Olivier award for his portrayal of King George – will leave the production.
Jamael Westman will continue in the title role, however will take a break between December 17 and January 12, during which time Alexander Hamilton will be played by Ash Hunter.
Giles Terera will end his Olivier award-winning stint as Arron Burr, with Sifiso Mazibuko, who was already part of the London cast, taking over from December 3.
Christine Allado will also leave the cast, with London company member Courtney-Mae Briggs moving into the role of Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds.
Other leading company members continuing in their roles include Tarin Callender, Rachelle Ann Go, Jason Pennycooke and Cleve September.
New cast members also include Karl Queensborough, as the alternate Alexander Hamilton, as well as Robson Broad, Lisa Darnell, Joe Griffiths-Brown, Sinead Long, Emile Ruddock and Ellena Vincent.
The Lin-Manuel Miranda musical, which is directed by Thomas Kail, is currently booking at the Victoria Palace Theatre until March 2019, and is produced by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, the Public Theater and Cameron Makintosh.
