Filipina actress Rachelle Ann Go to star in Hamilton
We're so proud!
(SPOT.ph) Tony Award-winning Hamilton is set to open its West End production in November 2017 at the Victoria Palace Theater in London. Unfortunately, it looks like an Asian tour is far from happening at the moment and Filipinos can only wait and see. Well, why not bring a Filipino to the West End for now?
In a report by Broadway.com, it is revealed that our very own Rachelle Ann Go has been chosen to star as Elizabeth Hamilton, wife of America's founding father Alexander. This was also confirmed by entertainment columnist Baz Bamigboye of The Daily Mail. The title role has yet to be cast.
