Dallas ‘Hamilton’ performance canceled after ‘breakthrough COVID’ in the company Tuesday night

Dallas Summer Musicals has added a performance, says future performances of the musical are scheduled to go on as planned.

Update: Wed. Nov. 24, 2021 at 10:40 a.m.: This story has been updated with new details about an additional performance and options for ticket holders impacted by the Nov. 23 cancellation.

Dallas Summer Musicals posted a message on its website and Facebook page around 5 p.m. Tuesday night that its Nov. 23 performance that same evening of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton was canceled. “Breakthrough COVID-19 cases have been detected within the company of Hamilton,” according to the statement. “All future performances of Hamilton at the Music Hall are scheduled to go on as planned.”

An update has since been posted on DSM’s website that an extra performance of the show has been added for Sunday, Dec. 5, at 7:30 p.m. “All tickets from the canceled performance on Tuesday, Nov. 23, will be honored at this new performance,” according to the statement. Patrons who had tickets for the canceled show can also exchange them for another performance or receive a full refund by contacting their original point of purchase.

So far, the performance for Wednesday night remains on.

The developments come after a rocky start to the musical’s second run in Dallas. Last week, hundreds of Hamilton fans missed parts of their shows due to parking woes, traffic hassles and other problems.
