SALT LAKE CITY — “Hamilton” fans in Utah are going to have to wait a little bit longer to see the “10-dollar Founding Father without a father” on stage.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Pulitzer Prize-winning musical was originally scheduled to hit Salt Lake City for a monthlong run starting Dec. 15, the Deseret News reported. Now, due to the pandemic, the Broadway hit will run at the Eccles Theater in July 2021 — a year after Disney Plus released the musical to a wider audience than ever before.

“Hamilton” debuted on Broadway in 2015 and first took Utah by storm in 2018. Tickets for all shows that year sold out within four hours, and more than 2,000 high school students did extra schoolwork for a shot to see one of the top-grossing Broadway musicals of all time.

Those who had tickets for the “Hamilton” run in December/January can plan to use them for the rescheduled production in July, according to the Broadway at the Eccles website.
