Mutter a somber “and Peggy!” in commemoration. Jasmine Cephas Jones, who has portrayed Hamilton’s dual role of Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds during both the musical’s Off Broadway and Broadway iterations, will be performing her last show today, December 8. “Today is my last performance at @hamiltonmusical,” she wrote on her Instagram. “Thank you for the most life changing 2 years. Thank you for making a platform to show the world that diversity is important and it is a beautiful thing to just be who you are … that you are enough. What a ride! Now let’s do this one last time!” With Jones’s departure, the only original Hamilton cast member that remains is Okieriete Onaodowan, who plays the dual role of Hercules Mulligan and James Madison. Schuyler sisters for life.
