The former John Laurens/Philip Hamilton will vie for the prize on the reality dance competition beginning September 18.
Actor Jordan Fisher first burst onto the scene in Fox’s Grease: Live as the lovable Doody. After a stint in Broadway’s Hamilton, Fisher now joins the cast of Season 25 of ABC’s hit dance competition show Dancing With The Stars.
Fisher, who has taken on choreography from three-time Tony-winning choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler in Hamilton and moves from Zach Woodlee in Grease: Live, will compete against Malcolm in the Middle’s Frankie Muniz, Debbie Gibson, Nick and Vanessa Lachey, Pretty Little Liars star Sasha Pieterse, Nikki Bella, NBA star Derek Fisher, violinist Lindsey Stirling, paralympian Victoria Arlen, former NFL star Terrell Owens, Property Brothers’ Drew Scott, and Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran.
Madonna, who attended the April 18 evening performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's acclaimed Off-Broadway musical Hamilton, was not invited backstage following the performance due to her lack of theatre etiquette.
