Tickets were supposed to go on sale April 20; no new on-sale date has been announced.
The Denver Center for Performing Arts (DCPA) was hoping to offer a little good cheer in this uncertain time by opening up public tickets sales on April 20. People were briefly excited to get their hands on one of the hottest tickets, for Hamilton, in the last few years. Last time the show came to Denver in 2018, thousands upon thousands people were literally competing for tickets. (Editor's note: Here in our office, at least 10 of us attempted to get tickets. Though we all got on the waiting list within minutes of each other, our numbers varied by several thousand.)
But, alas, it was not to be.
The center announced last Wednesday it would be opening up ticket sales in April, and then Governor Polis gave a press conference urging realistic expectations as the economy began to open up. By last Friday, DCPA decided to postpone the ticket sale date in light of the governor's words. There was no new on-sale date announced, but the center still has plan to host the show starting this fall.
"At present we are still hoping to host Hamilton at The Buell Theatre Aug 12-Oct 4, 2020. That said, we are mindful that our plans may change as the situation evolves. It is a dynamic situation requiring tremendous flexibility in our response. Of the utmost importance to us is the health and well-being of our valued theatergoers, staff and the traveling performers," said DenverCenter.org.
DCPA encourages all who are interested in Hamilton tickets to check back on the DCPA ticket site for all updates. You can also sign up for Hamilton ticket alerts on the ticket site, as well, to get the latest news.
In the meantime, DCPA wants to assure patrons that it will be ready to open up when the time is right.
"While our lights have dimmed temporarily, we want you to know that the DCPA isn’t going anywhere," it said. If you want to ensure the DCPA stays operational in this touch time, there are several ways to contribute.
