Lin-Manuel Miranda Leaving 'Hamilton,' Sets Exit Date

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator and star of the smash Broadway show Hamilton, will be leaving the show on July 9 to pursue other projects, THR reports.

The exit will come just a few weeks after the June 12 Tony Awards. Hamilton received a whopping 16 nominations, including three for Lin-Manuel (Best Actor in a Musical, Best Score, and Best Book).

Lin-Manuel has a ton of irons in the fire right now. First, he’s signed on to star with Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns, his other Broadway hit In the Heights is going to become a movie, and the publication also reports that he is thinking of new ideas for another musical.

Hamilton has famously hard-to-get tickets, with prices in the hundreds for a single seat.

Charlie Rowe Stars in BAM's Play 'The Judas Kiss' (Photos)

Charlie Rowe stars in a scene alongside co-star Rupert Everett in these production photos from BAM’s production of the play The Judas Kiss.

The play is currently running in Brooklyn, N.Y. through June 12.

Charlie is best known for his work on Fox’s critically acclaimed series Red Band Society and he was one of the frontrunners for the role of Spider-Man in the new franchise.

The Judas Kiss explores two pivotal moments in the life — and downfall — of author Oscar Wilde (Everett). Set in two acts on either side of Wilde’s imprisonment on charges of indecency, we see Wilde after the collapse of his libel case against the Marquess of Queensbury (the father of Wilde’s beloved, Lord Alfred “Bosie” Douglas), and later in Naples, after two years of imprisonment, when he is reunited with Bosie (Rowe).

Benjamin Walker's 'American Psycho' to Close on Broadway

The musical version of American Psycho, which is currently playing on Broadway with actor Benjamin Walker in the lead role, will close next month.

The show will end its run on June 5 after just 81 performances. It had its official opening night on April 21.

Duncan Sheik, who wrote the music and lyrics for the hit musical Spring Awakening, made his return to Broadway with this musical.

American Psycho will be closing before the Tony Awards happen on June 12. It is nominated for its scenic design and lighting design.

Go see the show now if you want to see it before it closes. Benjamin spends much of the show either shirtless or in just a pair of tighty whities!
