The balance continues to shift for Hamilton, as Daveed Diggs is the latest cast member to exit the show.

Diggs, who won a Tony Award for best featured actor in a musical last month, will leave the show after Friday’s performance, as first reported by Broadway.com.

The 34-year-old made his Broadway debut with Hamilton playing the dual roles of Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson.

Following news of Diggs’ departure, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who himself left the show on Saturday, tweeted, “[World] sorry for hogging @DaveedDiggs so long. He’s headed to every movie/show you [love]. SO proud we were his Bway debut.”

Miranda, as well as Leslie Odom, Jr. and Phillipa Soo, performed in their final Hamilton show on Sunday.

Diggs’ roles will be recast, with alternates Andrew Chappelle, Austin Smith, and Seth Stewart filling in as America’s favorite fighting Frenchman and President Jefferson until casting is set.
