According to the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, Lin-Manuel Miranda won't star in his musical Hamilton when it opens at the Victoria Palace Theatre in the autumn of 2017.
However, Bamigboye reports that Miranda plans to join the cast later on in its run, perhaps in 2018 or 2019. Dates of the musical's London opening are expected to be officially confirmed over the next few weeks.
Hamilton is directed by Thomas Kail with book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The show opened on Broadway last year to tremendous acclaim and is sold out for the rest of the year.
The current Broadway cast includes Miranda in the title role with Rory O'Malley as King George III, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Phillip Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis De Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler and Javier Muñozas alternate Hamilton.
