I see online that he is leaving in JULY,  but can't find exactly what the date is anywhere.

Do any readers know?   Also if it's in late July, is he playing any of the Monday shows, 7/11, 7/18, 7/25?

Many thanks,

It's not posted anywhere because it's not public yet.

I would be shocked if his last show wasn't either July 11th (anniversary of the Hamilton-Burr duel) or 12th (anniversary of his death).

How would that scare you?  

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Maybe "eerie" is the right word, then. Come on, wouldn't it be a little skin-crawling to parallel the anniversary of the DEATH of the character you're playing with your departure date from the show?

No. It's just something pre-thought-out. That's all.

Not really, sounds a bit hokey to me.

He's been completely silent about his departure date and avoiding the question whenever asked but sometime in the middle of July most likely. 

 

And leaving on the date of Hamilton's death would be so cheesy lol.

Not to mention the 11th & 12th are a Monday and Tuesday. Don't most cast members leave shows on the last 1 of a week & not in the middle or beginning?

They leave whenever they feel like/are contractually allowed to. Day of the week has nothing to do with it, aside from making the going-away party a little more fun if there's no show the next day.

Yes, MOST actors finish their week fully.

Since Lin doesn't have a Sunday show, he would leave on Saturday.

Since Lin wrote the show, he'll leave whenever he damn well wants to.

There was this speculative article that says he's departing in late July. From an unnamed source though. http://heatst.com/entertainment/hamilton-follow-the-money/

Yeah that's the same website that said Javier is replacing Lin, and Javi has said repeatedly on social media he has received no offer.

Yeah, that's why I noted it was purely speculative. Also it's a conservative website that came out of the Rupert Murdoch's news corporation so I don't know if I'd trust anything that's posted there lol.

Heat street is just weird click bait. This article is called "Lin-Manuel and cast drop 6 secrets about Hamilton."  None of them are secrets. Nor are yet major. Nor are they all even about Hamilton--like the fact that Lin also composed Bring it On.

Curious about this too.  We have tickets for the Wednesday matinee on 7/20!  I've already seen it without Lin, but my sister who is joining me hasn't seen the show yet and is keeping her fingers crossed he is still in the show then....

Because I was citing something that had actually talked about his departure, however untrue it may be.

If you're referring to me, I guess I shouldn't have. I never realize these are from heat street until after I click on them. They're so stupid.
