The story of tonight? Another one of Hamilton’s original cast members is leaving the production. Anthony Ramos, who has been playing the dual roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton since Hamilton’s Off Broadway run at the Public Theater, will be performing for the last time on November 20. Ramos is leaving the production to film Spike Lee’s upcoming Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It, in which he’ll be a lead. Jordan Fisher, best known for his supporting role in Grease: Live , will serve as his replacement. The news of Ramos’s departure comes a few days after the announcement that Christopher Jackson, who originated the role of George Washington, would be leaving the musical on November 13 to pursue other projects.
