Hamilton alum Anthony Ramos takes on the central role of Usnavi, originally created by Miranda. Among those joining him for the Washington, D.C. concert staging are Vanessa Hudgens (Gigi, Grease: Live) as Vanessa, Ana Villafañe (On Your Feet!) as Nina, Eden Espinosa (Wicked) as Daniela, and J. Quinton Johnson (Hamilton) as Benny.

The production will also feature Mateo Ferro as Sonny, Saundra Santiago as Abuela Claudia, Virgil Gadson as Graffiti Pete, Arianna Rosario as Carla, and three alums of the original production: Blanca Camacho as Camila, Rick Negron as Kevin, and Eliseo Roman as the Piragua Guy.

Rounding out the company are David Baida, Nico DeJesus, John Edwards, Hope Easterbrook, Rosie Fiedelman, Henry Gainza, Carlos Gonzalez, Morgan Marcell, April Ortiz, Khori Petinaud, and Voltaire Wade-Greene.

Stephanie Klemons will direct and choreograph the semi-staged presentation as part of the Kennedy Center’s Broadway Center Stage series.
