Go is portraying Elizabeth Schulyer Hamilton, the wife of the titular character Alexander Hamilton.

The 36-year-old artist starred as Elizabeth in the West End production in London from 2017 to 2019. Her performance was met with much praise from critics, getting a nod as Best Actress in the 2018 BroadwayWorld UK Awards.
