She's not throwing away her shot! Morgan Anita Wood will join the cast of Hamilton on Broadway beginning July 16 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

Wood has performed in Hamilton across North America for the past six years, making her debut in the 2019 Puerto Rico production alongside the show's creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda. She went on to understudy multiple roles and then step into the role of Eliza in Hamilton's national tour, performing in cities including Honolulu, Toronto, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

Now, Wood will make her Broadway debut as Eliza, replacing current star Stephanie Jae Park. She joins a cast that also includes Trey Curtis as Alexander Hamilton, Jared Dixon as Aaron Burr, Jennie Harney-Fleming as Angelica Schuyler, Bryson Bruce as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Tamar Greene as George Washington, Rubén J. Carbajal as John Laurens/Phillip Hamilton, Ebrin R. Stanley as James Madison/Hercules Mulligan, Cherry Torres as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds, and Jarrod Spector as King George.

"After nearly six years on tour with Hamilton, the opportunity to make my Broadway debut in this incredible show is truly a dream come true," Wood said in a statement. "Playing the role of Eliza, I feel so lucky to share this story with audiences every night."

Winner of 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Hamilton tells the story of America's founding fathers, including the title character of Alexander Hamilton, with rap and hip-hop music and a cast that reflects the diverse makeup of today's America. The show has played on Broadway since 2015.
