Javier Munoz to Replace Lin-Manuel Miranda in 'Hamilton'

Broadway has found its new Alexander Hamilton!

Javier Munoz is set to replace Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda in the ground-breaking Broadway play.

In case you didn’t know, Javier is already the understudy for the role and also serves as the production’s composer.

He actually played the lead when President Obama saw the show last summer.

Javier will officially take over on July 11 as Lin bows out on July 9.

“My video montage from this morning’s press conference. ❤️@Lin_Manuel ❤️@HamiltonMusical ❤️#HamFam #JaviltonRides,” Javier captioned a video he posted after the news broke, which you can watch below.

    No, Javier has been Lin alternate, different thing, he’s been doing scheduled shows instead of Lin since he finished his cancer treatment and he’s not the productions composer. Oh and it’s a musical, not a play, at least that’s what the 11 Tonys say. So uninformed.
