Hamilton: An American Musical will make its West End premiere later this year, with two Filipina stage actors in the cast. According to broadway.com, Rachelle Ann Go will play one of the lead characters, Eliza Hamilton. Christine Allado will play Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds.


Rachelle Ann Go started her career as a singer and actress in the Philippines before she moved to London in 2014 and quickly became one of West End’s stage favorites. She played the roles of Gigi in the West End’s restaging of Miss Saigon (2014), Fantine in Les Miserables (2015), and was involved in other international acts. This year, apart from her role as Eliza in Hamilton, she is also set to make her New York Broadway debut as Gigi in the upcoming production of Miss Saigon.



Christine Allado, on the other hand, was in the local spotlight last year after she sang a duet with Andrea Bocelli at his Manila performance. But she has been a West End staple for years, having played the lead character in London’s In the Heights, among others. “Can't even express how happy and grateful I am to be joining the original London cast of Hamilton: An American Musical as Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds,” she wrote today on her Facebook page. “Thankful and excited and so thrilled for this project, which I have been a massive fan of and now get to be a part of!”


Hamilton: An American Musical is a Pulitzer and Tony award-winning production about Alexander Hamilton, the founding father of America, with music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. It will premiere in London on November 21.
