#1 What is the Hamilton Musical About?
Alright, some of you can roll your eyes – but while all the world is a stage, not everyone is in the know with theater. Here is what Hamilton musical is about.
HAMILTON is the story of America then, told by America now.
Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, HAMILTON has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.
With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography. It has won Tony ®, Grammy ®, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.Dallas Summer Musicals

#4 How Early Do I Need to Arrive for the Hamilton Musical?
While we have been on both sides of the coin in regards to what time to arrive for a show – the best timing is to plan to arrive 30 – 45 minutes early. You will want to plan for time to park, go thru security, order for intermission (more on that later), get a drink, grab your Hamilton playbill and find your seat.
Eating Before the Show
If you are hungry, there are a few options onsite and offsite. If you are looking for an onsite sit down restaurant, you are in luck! Fair Park Music Hall is home to Crystal Terrace restaurant that is opened during shows. You will need to make reservations in order to dine at Crystal Terrace.
There is also a Bistro available for grab and go food options. You can grab wraps, salads, snacks and sandwiches during and after the show. The Bistro is on the second level of Fair Park Music Hall.

Here’s the deal, it’s Dallas which is a MIXED BAG. You will see everything from jeans to formal attire. When getting dressed, I usually aim for the middle. I typically wear a dress, and the husband wears a formal jacket with a t-shirt.

#8 How Long is the Hamilton Musical?
Wondering how long Hamilton Musical is? 2 hours 45 minutes with 1 intermission.
Intermission is typically 15-20 minutes. If you attend a 7:30 pm Dallas Hamilton show, expect to leave around 11:00 pm. The Hamilton intermission is roughly 1 hour and 15 minutes into the performance.
#9 Ordering Ahead for Intermission
Here is an insider tip. The lines during the Hamilton intermission are crazy. Everyone wants their snack. While you have a few options for beverages (alcohol, water and sodas) and snacks (think candy bars) – order a cheese board or charcuterie instead.
Get ahead of the game by pre-ordering a snack for intermission before you leave the house. Visit this link and choose from several options. During intermission, you will just go to the restaurant and show your paid order to the staff. You will then be seated at a table that has your order ready for you to eat and drink! It’s as easy as that and worth it. No waiting, no stress and you get some grub as you gear up for the second half of the show.
You can also order ahead before the show – you will see a table before you enter the theatre. Make sure you plan accordingly and arrive early enough to Hamilton to order.
Snacks and the Bistro are available during Hamilton intermission, as well as various snack and drink stands right outside the theater. Just know, there will be a long wait!
