Andrew Rannells to replace Jonathan Groff in Hamilton

Actor Andrew Rannells is stepping in to temporarily replace Jonathan Groff in hit Broadway musical Hamilton.
The former Glee star is taking a month-long hiatus from the historical hip-hop show and theatre veteran Rannells will be taking his place.
Groff will be spending his time off shooting a TV movie to wrap up his recently cancelled HBO series Looking.
Girls star Rannells has made a habit of replacing TV stars on the Great White Way – last year (14) he took over from Neil Patrick Harris in hit musical Hedwig & the Angry Inch.
Rannells will hit the stage in Hamilton from 27 October to 29 November (15), and Groff is scheduled to return on 1 December (15).
