'Hamilton' has been canceled due to coronavirus concerns in San Francisco. (Broadway SF)

UPDATE, March 31: The current tour of 'Hamilton' has now closed for good in San Francisco. It had been scheduled to play through May 31, 2020. 'The Last Ship' and others are now canceled as well.

Hamilton has gone dark.

The hit Broadway musical currently at the Orpheum in San Francisco has been temporarily canceled due to coronavirus concerns. Additionally, The Last Ship, starring Sting at the Golden Gate Theatre, has been put on hiatus as well.

Starting tonight, all performances of Hamilton and The Last Ship will be canceled through Tuesday, March 31.

Those who purchased official tickets for one of the canceled shows through BroadwaySF, the show's presenter, will get a refund. (Tickets sold on a second-hand site are subject to that site's terms and conditions.)

The statement from the show's organizers follows:

At the direction of the City of San Francisco’s mandate to ban events larger than 1,000 people across the city, all BroadwaySF productions at the Orpheum and Golden Gate Theatres will be canceled beginning this evening (tonight’s performances of HAMILTON at 7pm and THE LAST SHIP at 7:30pm) through Wednesday March 25 Tuesday, March 31.

If you have purchased tickets to a performance of HAMILTON or THE LAST SHIP during this time period, you will receive a refund. Tickets purchased through Goldstar, Vivid Seats, TodayTix and any other sources that are not BroadwaySF related should consult their place of purchase for a refund.

We take the health and safety of our patrons, staff and community seriously and urge everyone to continue to follow the guidelines set forth by public health officials.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide updates as we receive them.
