The Academy Abroad: Ivy Quainoo cast as Eliza Hamilton
Updated: Jul 11, 2022
The Academy might have campuses located in New York and Los Angeles, but that hasn't stopped our alumni from taking over other markets across the globe. As part of a new series, let's look at the countless alumni who have developed careers outside of the United States. These range from theatre actors to producers, stars of television and cinema, and so much more.
For our first alumni, we look at recent graduate Ivy Quainoo. To let us know who you’d like to see featured next, visit us through The Actors Society.
Ivy Quainoo (Class of 2017) will debut the part of Eliza Hamilton in a new production of Hamilton, the Tony-winning, blockbuster musical written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The show, currently playing on Broadway, London's West End, and Melbourne, Australia will welcome a new production in Hamburg, Germany. Opening this fall, the production will be the first to be in a language other than English.
Previews begin September 24th, with regular performances from October 6th.
