NEW YORK (AP) — Tony Award-nominee and "Hamilton" star Phillipa Soo has a new whimsical gig lined up — she'll lead a musical stage version of the film "Amelie" that hopes to land on Broadway in 2017.

Soo, who plays Eliza Schuyler in "Hamilton," will take over the part in the quirky romantic comedy that brought fame to actress Audrey Tautou in the 2001 Oscar-nominated film.

The musical features music by Daniel Messé, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and a book by Craig Lucas. Tony-winning director Pam MacKinnon will helm the show.

When she will leave "Hamilton" to start "Amelie" is unclear. Already, "Hamilton" star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has revealed he will leave the show on July 9 to act and write for other projects.
