Weekend performances of Hamilton canceled due to flu outbreak

The four shows scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at the Keller Auditorium have been postponed indefinitely.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Performances of the hit Broadway show "Hamilton" at the Keller Auditorium this weekend have been postponed due to a flu outbreak within the company, organizers announced Saturday.

The original announcement included only the two Saturday shows, and it came not long before the matinee performance was set to begin at 2 p.m. A number of ticketholders showed up for the performance only to discover that it had been canceled.

Later in the evening, a spokesperson issued an update that Sunday's performances would also be canceled due to the flu outbreak.

Saturday's performances were scheduled for 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sunday's at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Those with tickets to the Saturday and Sunday performances are asked to hold onto those tickets until the shows can be rescheduled.

"We apologize for the disappointment and inconvenience this scheduling change has caused ticket holders," the spokesperson said.

Ticketholders don't need to take any further action. Information on the rescheduled shows will be emailed out soon, according to the company.

"Hamilton" began its run at the Keller on April 13 and is currently scheduled to run through May 1, presented by Broadway in Portland.
