'Hamilton,' the off-Broadway musical about rapping founding fathers which recently opened to rave reviews, will be moving to the Great White Way this summer. Even bigger news: Broadway sweetheart Jonathan Groff will take over the role of King George III from Brian D'Arcy James in the Broadway production. With lyrics, music and book all done by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Public Theater production opened Feb. 17 to some of the best reviews in years.
