Under the direction of Thomas Kail and choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, the cast taking center stage in THE GOLDEN GATE and touring across America will be….

Newcomer Victoria Ann Scovens as “Eliza Schuyler”,
Ashley De La Rosa (fresh from the cast of Mean Girls) in the double duty in the roles of “Peggy Schuyler” (AND PEGGY) along with “Maria Reynolds”,
Paris Nix taking on the dual roles of “Marquis de Lafayette” and “Thomas Jefferson”, which he previously performed in the show’s Chicago company,

HAMILTON’s other 2 National Touring companies (the ANGELICA and PHILLIP Tours) are expecting to relaunch their runs later this year.
As previously announced, The Broadway production reopens at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on September 14th, 2021, in London’s West End starting August 19th, 2021, and will bring its Australian company to Melbourne starting next year.
We send our love, support, and appreciation for HAMILTON’s AND PEGGY TOUR COMPANY. Wishing them a happy, healthy, and safe first night back and a successful continued run.
