Leslie Odom, Jr. is leaving 'Hamilton' on July 9th as well

Odom Jr. took to Facebook to send a personal message to his fans:

WHO TELLS BURR'S STORY?

Not only will Odom Jr. be leaving, but he also may not be in the live recordings that we're all excited will be happening before LMM and Phillipa Soo leave. In the video above, he says he MAY be in them, but things are up in the air and he'll keep his fans updated. Fingers crossed, because although we're sure the next Burr will be wonderful, there's something magical about this original Broadway cast and how they all play off each other and perform together.

THE AARON BURR CHARITY AUCTION

Odom Jr. also announced that he's planning to auction everything currently in his Hamilton dressing room (signed, of course) for charity. He didn't specify what charities will be involved yet, nor an actual date, but all the more reason to stay tuned and find out how you can own a piece of Broadway history!
