NEW YORK (AP) — The news that no die-hard “Hamilton” fan — or anyone who hasn’t seen the Broadway smash yet — wants to hear has arrived: Lin-Manuel Miranda, its creator and star, is leaving the show.

Miranda said Thursday his last performance will be July 9.

Miranda has lined up plenty of work after he leaves. He has a lead role opposite Emily Blunt in a film sequel of “Mary Poppins” and will help turn his musical “In the Heights” into a movie.

“Hamilton” has burst through the Broadway bubble like few shows. It has been praised by politicians and rap stars, influenced the debate over the nation’s currency and become a cultural phenomenon. On Sunday, it won 11 Tony Awards, including best new musical, best book and best score.
