Isang Pilipinong Amerikanong artista kamakailan ay nag-debut sa lead role ng Broadway musical hit na “Hamilton”, kaya siya ang unang Asian-American na gumaganap sa isang teatro sa Broadway sa New York.

Noong Sabado, si Marc dela Cruz, na Filipino-Japanese at American descent, ay gumanap sa stage bilang Alexander Hamilton sa produksyon ng musika sa Broadway.

Si Dela Cruz ay isinilang sa Hawaii sa isang filipinong ama at mixed-race na ina, iniulat ng CNN Philippines.

“Puno ako ng pasasalamat sa mga creators at originators ng Hamilton. Ito ay isang karangalan upang makatulong na magbahagi ng kahanga-hangang craft at mahalagang piyesa sa teatro, “sabi ni dela Cruz sa isang post ng Instagram.

Ang aktor ay ang unang Filipino-American cast na gaganap na lead sa maalamat na Distrito ng Teatro sa Manhattan.

Habang ito ang unang pagkakataon ni dela Cruz na gumanap bilang Alexander Hamilton, gumanap na din siya ng maraming tungkulin sa musikal mula noong sumali sa cast noong Nobyembre noong nakaraang taon.

Ang iba pang half-filipino actors sa Broadway cast ni Hamilton ay sina Karla Garcia at si Briones. Samantala, si Rachelle Ann Go at Christine Allado ay sumali sa London cast of the musical.
