Patrons with tickets were notified via the Dallas Summer Musicals website and via the Dallas Summer Musicals Facebook page.

The statement notified ticket holders that tonight’s performance of the well-loved and highly acclaimed Broadway musical written by Lin-Manuel Miranda was canceled because ā€œbreakthrough COVID-19 cases [had] been detected within the company of Hamilton,” and that “all future performances of HamiltonĀ at the Music Hall are scheduled to go on as planned.ā€

Miranda, who wroteĀ Hamilton,Ā has described the Broadway musical as “America then, told by America now.” The musical, which has seen wild success since its inception, features a cast of non-white actors who play the roles of America’s founding fathers. Hamilton tells the story of one of America’s most prolific founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton, in two separate acts through song and rap.

Its very first performance was off-Broadway in February 2015. During that multi-month series of performances, the cast of HamiltonĀ played to a sold-out theater every time. It made its Broadway debut in August 2015 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, and it’s been applause and accolades ever since.
