Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff, who originated the role of King George in the Broadway transfer of the hit musical Hamilton, plays his final performance April 9 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. He is departing the show to begin filming the lead role in David Fincher’s new Netflix series Mindhunter.

Succeeding him will be Tony Award-nominated Book of Mormon star Rory O'Malley, who begins performances April 11.

The role of King George was created Off-Broadway by current Something Rotten! star Brian d'Arcy James. Book of Mormon alum Andrew Rannells briefly assumed Groff's crown last fall while the actor took a leave of absence for a film project.

The historic Broadway musical about Founding Father Alexander Hamilton was written by Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, who stars in the title role.
