Is it safe to say Rachelle Ann Go is West End’s current fave?
After playing Gigi in the West End revival of Miss Saigon, and Fantine in West End’s Les Miserables, Pinay actress Rachelle Ann Go is set to return in London’s theater district in November, this time as Elizabeth Hamilton in the London premiere of Hamilton, the Tony- and Pulitzer-winning musical.
“I woke up crying today because of so much joy,” a portion of Rachelle’s tweet reads, which Hamilton playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda replied to, giving permission to photo their photo together. The diligent Rachelle did on both Twitter and Instagram. Ah, we feel her jubilation.
According to Manila Bulletin, Hamilton has also tapped Christine Allado, another Filipina, to play the roles of Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds. What is #PinoyPride.
Oh, but that’s getting ahead of the story. In April, Rachelle will first play Gigi in the Broadway production of Les Miserables. Come August, she’ll leave the Big Apple and make her way to London for the November premiere of Hamilton.
Aahh Hamilton is a dream! Thank you all for your LOVE. I woke up crying today because of so much joy.❤️
To GOD be the glory.👆
