Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda announced his last performance in the hit show will be July 9 — but you still may have a chance to see him as the founding father without a father. Not only does he promise to return “again and again” to the role but also the show will be filmed in late June by RadicalMedia and be made available at some point.

“We are aware that history has its eyes on us,” said Miranda, who has been in the show since its debut off-Broadway in early 2015.

Javier Munoz, current understudy for Alexander Hamilton, who also took over from Miranda in In the Heights, will take over July 11.

“For people who will say, ‘But I’ll never see Lin as Hamilton!’ — yes, you will,” Miranda said. “I have written this insane part that I can’t seem to get tired of, that is new every night. … I think this is a role I will be going back to again and again.”
