Why did Anthony Ramos leave Hamilton?
After the show’s debut in 2015, Ramos left November 2016 with full support of his Hamilton family.
Miranda tweeted “I told y’all @Anthony_Ramos1 would be a star. Now he goes to conquer the next world,” following his exit.
Shortly after he left, Ramos sat down with Billboard to talk about his exit from the Broadway hit and how it was the right time.
“I feel like I’ve done everything I could, and it feels great. There’s no better time for me to leave than now,” he said, “I left it all out on stage at the Rogers theater and I’m ready to move on. It feels really good. Bittersweet, honestly.”
“I don’t regret anything. You know when you leave things and sometimes you say to yourself, ‘Man, I wish I could have done more?’ I don’t feel that way,” he continued.
After leaving Hamilton, Ramos went on to star alongside Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in the 2018 film, A Star is Born.
He is currently set to star in the upcoming Transformers movie and is currently singing and dancing on the big screen in the movie version of Miranda’s Tony Award-winning musical In The Heights that was released on June 4, 2021.
