“Hamilton” is a hit Broadway and Tony Award-winning musical about the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.

With music and story by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the play has been groundbreaking for its use of hip-hop and rap and casting of non-white actors.

Go will play Eliza Schuyler, Hamilton’s wife. In the London production, 25-year-old Jamael Westman plays the lead role.

Another Filipino, Christine Allado, stars as another Schuyler sister, Peggy. She will also play Maria Reynolds, a mistress of Hamilton.

Go gained fame when she won “Search for a Star” in 2004. She has since charted a career as a singer in local and international concerts.

Her theater career spans major roles in West End’s “Miss Saigon” and “Les Miserables.”

Allado has a powerful opera voice, guesting in Andrea Bocelli’s Cinema World Tour. She starred in the West End production of Miranda’s other musical, “In the Heights.” /ra
