ATLANTA — The performance of "Hamilton" at the Fox Theatre that was postponed on Wednesday night due to an issue with COVID testing will be rescheduled for Monday, the venue announced.
The theater said Thursday that some of the production's performers came back with positive tests sometime before the show on Wednesday night, and "the production needed to confirm that everyone else was negative."
A statement said the turnaround time for the test results was "unexpectedly delayed" and "they were unable to get them back in time to continue with the show."
The show will now be performed on Monday, Sept. 20 at 7:30 p.m. The theater said all ticket-holders to the Sept. 15 performance will be able to go to the rescheduled showing, and refunds and exchanges will be made available to anyone who can't make it.

"HAMILTON, Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Atlanta and the Fox Theatre apologize for any frustration this cancelation caused for ticketholders, which was a quickly evolving situation that was communicated as swiftly as possible," a statement said.
