Former Hamilton star Daveed Diggs, who left the production in July, has landed a recurring role on Season 3 of Black-ish as Rainbow’s hipster brother.
We’ve had a few days to accept that Daveed Diggs—Hamilton’s original Thomas Jefferson and “favorite fightin’ Frenchman,” the Marquis de Lafayette—is leaving the Broadway production to pursue other projects.
“What comes next?” you and King George might ask. As it turns out, Hollywood: Diggs will star in Stephen…
Two more Hamilton stars are leaving the production to focus on other projects, thus bringing a close to the Hamilton chapter everyone knew and obsessively loved. Sorry for your loss.
On Saturday, Hamilton stars and original cast members Lin-Manuel Miranda, Phillipa Soo, and Leslie Odom Jr. took their final curtain call with the production, and you will get caught up in their loving nostalgia.
Saturday evening is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s last performance in Hamilton, and his fans are determined to crush each other to death just to catch a glimpse of him.
Oh, did you think we’d make it through July the Fourth without one single Hamilton post? Never fear my, babies. For here are the Schuyler Sisters, in the middle of their Tony Awards performance, reminding you to work — whatever that may mean for you tonight (I hope it’s figurative).
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s lyrics have apparently become more popular on Google than the Federalist Papers.
Phillipa Soo will play the lead in the upcoming Broadway production of Amélie after she’s done with Hamilton. I’m sorry to have to relay the news that Hamilton continues to completely fall apart.
Wicked, a word guaranteed to conjure vivid memories for anybody who’s been in a marching band or drama club for the last decade or so, is officially going to be a movie.
Look, I know you want to see Hamilton. And I know tickets are impossible to get unless you’re willing to spend thousands of your hard-earned dollars. And I know you were sort of friendly with Audra McDonald in the early 2000s after doing that one episode of SVU together. And I know you haven’t really spoken to her…
Red carpet event coverage is some of the most love-to-hate television in our culture, the brouhaha and pomp of the glamorous people in fancy dresses and tuxedos imbibed from the comforts of our own homes, often with wine and sweatpants. The regular rotation of hosts—E!’s Giuliana and Terrence J, most reliably, if…
At the top of Sunday night’s show, host James Corden joked that the Tony Awards would be much more diverse than the Oscars—but it wasn’t just a joke. Black performers won all four musical acting categories at the Tonys for the first time in the show’s history.
Sunday evening’s Tony Awards have been dominated by Hamilton—the record-holder for most nominations now also holds the record (probably) for most time devoted to a single musical during a live broadcast. It dominated the show’s opening, Lin-Manuel Miranda did a lengthy segment of Hamilton carpool karaoke with host…
The Tonys are motoring right along, with Hamilton so far scooping acting awards for Renée Elise Goldsberry and Daveed Diggs and a soundtrack honor for Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others. One of the most competitive categories, however, is that of Best Leading Actress in a Musical, where Hamilton’s Phillipa Soo is up…
After a mass shooting at a gay club in Orlando during the early hours of Sunday morning that left 50 casualties and 53 wounded, the cast of the musical Hamilton will not use prop guns during their Tony Awards performance tonight in the wake of the tragedy.
Many company members will see their contracts for the show expire on July 9, and who will stay and who will renew is mostly up in the air. Like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Phillipa Soo has been with the show since it debuted in February of 2015 at the Public. Also like him, she’s outta there.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, your impossibly cool dad, has a lot going on besides starring in the most obnoxiously successful musical in history and probably crushing all the awards at the Tonys on Sunday. An old show about his freestyle rap improv group will be available for streaming this summer.
