Premiere of ‘Hamilton’ postponed at Popejoy Hall

Local News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Popejoy Presents Broadway in New Mexico has announced that the highly-anticipated “Hamilton” show has postponed its premiere at Popejoy Hall due to continued concerns for the health and safety of its patrons, cast volunteers, crew, and staff. The show was originally scheduled to open on January 17, and will now open on August 18, 2021, and will run for 24 performances through September 5.

As tickets for the new season have yet to be mailed, current subscribers will not have to take any action. Popejoy states that all tickets issued will have the show’s new dates on them.

“We know that many patrons have been eager to come back to Popejoy, but are concerned about the safety of doing so,” said Director of Popejoy Hall Tom Tkach. “We are glad that we could arrange new dates for ‘Hamilton’, postponing it to a time when we will be better able to keep our audiences and everyone involved with putting on the show, safe.”

Other shows from Popejoy’s 19-20 and 20-21 seasons have been postponed including “Hairspray” and “Anastasia”. Updated Popejoy protocols can be found online at popejoypresents.com.
