Morgan Anita Wood is set to join the production of ‘Hamilton’ as a new principal cast member. She is slated to step into the role of Eliza Hamilton, beginning her run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on July 16. Wood is set to take over from Stephanie Jae Park, whose final performance is slated for July 14.
