Popejoy Presents Broadway in New Mexico Reschedules HAMILTON and HAIRSPRAY

Article Pixel

Originally scheduled to open in Albuquerque on January 17,  HAMILTON will now open on August 18, 2021 and run for 24 performances through September 5.

Popejoy Presents Broadway in New Mexico announced the much anticipated Broadway blockbuster, HAMILTON, has postponed its premiere appearance in Popejoy Hall due to continued concerns for the health and safety of patrons, cast, volunteers, staff and crew. Originally scheduled to open in Albuquerque on January 17, HAMILTON will now open on August 18, 2021 and run for 24 performances through September 5.

Current subscribers need do nothing. Since tickets for the new season have not yet been mailed, all tickets issued will have the 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 Tom Tkach, Director of Popejoy Hall. "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."

Many other shows from Popejoy's 19-20 and 20-21 seasons have also been postponed including Hairspray which will move from April to run October 14 - 17, 2021 and Anastasia now rescheduled for June 10 -13, 2021. A full list of postponements and updated protocols can be found at

Tkach commented, "We never could have imagined in March the extent that COVID-19 would disrupt live events. As we get closer to showtime again, we will share details of the health and safety protocols put in place for our patrons and teams."

The Popejoy Hall team released a statement to their patrons in an email yesterday, September 28:

"Prior to your return to Popejoy Hall, we will share our current health and safety protocols designed to create a comfortable environment for our patrons. These protocols will be developed based on local, state, and federal guidelines, and best industry practices.

Popejoy Hall staff will review and refine these protocols regularly and always with the health and wellness of our patrons, cast, crew, staff and volunteers in mind.

Thank you for your patience and continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the theater!"
