Hamilton's Phillipa Soo Will Star in Broadway's 'Amelie' Musical

Phillipa Soo, one of the breakout stars of the smash hit Broadway musical Hamilton, has a new project coming to the Great White Way in 2017.

The 26-year-old Tony-nominated actress will play the title role in Amelie, A New Musical, based on the French romantic comedy that was nominated for five Academy Awards in 2001, according to the NY Daily News.

Phillipa currently plays the lead female role of Eliza Schuyler in Hamilton and she will play her final performance on July 9, the same night as creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Amelie will play a run in Los Angeles this winter before going to Broadway.

Phillipa‘s fiance, actor Steven Pasquale, tweeted about his excitement for the show.
