Emmy Raver-Lampman, who is currently starring as Angelica Schuyler in the first national tour of Hamilton, has joined the cast of the upcoming Netflix series, The Umbrella Academy, according to Deadline. The live-action TV show is based on the comic book series by Gerard Way with illustrations by Gabriel Bá that was first published in 2007.
The new series centers around a dysfunctional family of superheroes. Raver-Lampman will play Allison, a beautiful film star with the power of suggestion—anything she says aloud is actualized.
The cast of The Umbrella Academy also features Oscar nominee Ellen Page (Juno), Tom Hopper (Game of Thrones), David Castañeda (We Are Unsatistifed), Robert Sheehan (Genius), and Aidan Gallagher (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn).
Raver-Lampman was last seen on Broadway in Hamilton as an ensemble member. Her other credits include A Night With Janis Joplin, Jekyll & Hyde, and Hair on Broadway, as well as the Chicago productions of Hamilton and The SpongeBob Musical.
The first national of Hamilton is currently playing the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles through December 30. Michael Luwoye stars as Alexander Hamilton and Tony nominee Joshua Henry as Aaron Burr, with Tony nominee Rory O’Malley as King George, Solea Pfeiffer as Eliza Hamilton, Isaiah Johnson as George Washington, Amber Iman as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds, Jordan Donica as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Mathenee Treco as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison, and Rubén J. Carbajal as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton.
Subsequent stops on the tour include San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, and Houston, Atlanta, among many more. A second national tour will launch in February 2018 in Seattle.
