Joshua Henry, Rory O'Malley and Michael Luwoye will reprise their roles on the road.

Joshua Henry, Rory O'Malley and Michael Luwoye will star in the national tour of Hamilton, producer Jeffrey Seller revealed Thursday.

The three show alums will play Aaron Burr, King George III and Alexander Hamilton, respectively, in the traveling production of Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop historical blockbuster.

Performances begin March 10 at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. That 21-week run will be followed by another 21-week engagement at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles.

Henry, a two-time Tony nominee, hits the road after starring in the Chicago production of Hamilton, while Luwoye and the Tony-nominated O'Malley hail from the Broadway run.

Inspired by Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography of founding father Alexander Hamilton, the country’s first treasury secretary, Hamilton, directed by Thomas Kail, features a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway tunes.

Winner of 11 Tony Awards, the original production was the top-selling show of 2016, grossing $105.5 million with 558,977 admissions and helping to propel Broadway's total annual box office to an unprecedented high of $1.367 billion.

Since beginning performances at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in July 2015, Hamilton has notched cumulative grosses of $146.1 million.
