Every action has an equal opposite reaction: Now that co-stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., and Phillipa Soo have said goodbye to Hamilton, Daveed Diggs will leave the record-breaking musical as well. Diggs won a Tony for his dual role of Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson; his last day in both parts will come July 15. The departure comes as a slight surprise, as Diggs was reported to be among the original cast members who renewed their contracts in early July, but his rep tells Vulture his inclusion was an "error."
