The Tuesday night performance of "Hamilton" at Music Hall at Fair Park has been canceled due to breakthrough cases of COVID-19 in the musical's company, Dallas Summer Musicals announced Tuesday night on Instagram, less than two hours to curtain.

All future performances of "Hamilton" at the Music Hall are scheduled to go on as planned, DSM said. If you bought tickets to Tuesday night's performance, DSM announced later Tuesday night that it will honor all tickets for Nov. 23 at an additional Dec. 5 performance at 7:30 p.m. If you are unable to attend the Dec. 5 show, you can exchange your tickets for another show or get a full refund for your ticket.

Actors Equity oversees COVID-19 protocols for national touring productions. These protocols include strict mask requirements and a strict testing regimen as well as other protocols that limit performer/crew exposure to anyone unaffiliated with the performance. All productions also have a COVID-19 safety manager.

The massively popular musical about the Founding Fathers made its Broadway debut in 2015 and is currently in its third North American tour. A movie version of the original production featuring the original cast debuted on Disney+ in July 2020. The touring production kicked off the latest DSM season on November 16.

WFAA has reached out to DSM for more information and will update this story with more details.

All future performances of Hamilton at the Music Hall are scheduled to go on as planned.
