RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The Pulitzer prize-winning musical “Hamilton” is back in Richmond for a two-week run, and showgoers are asked to plan ahead as parking will be limited.

From Tuesday, April 11 through Sunday, April 23, expect heavy traffic and limited parking on all routes to and near Altria Theater.

Those planning to see “Hamilton” are encouraged to use ride-share services such as Uber, Lyft, or taxi services to avoid heavy traffic congestion in the area. Spectators must also arrive at the theater 45 minutes to 1 hour before showtime to avoid delays.

Drivers looking to park near the Altria Theater during this period should arrive early to locate street parking or use one of two VCU parking decks located at West Main Street or West Cary Street. The VCU West Main Street deck is located across the street from Altria Theater.

The VCU West Cary Street deck is within a 10-minute walk. When the VCU West Main Street Deck hits capacity, parking attendants will route all cars to the VCU West Cary Street Deck. Parking deck capacity is limited; fees will cost $10 and should be paid electronically.

Residents and patrons should also note that parking will be extremely limited during a matinee performance of “Hamilton” at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 20 while VCU classes are in session.

On Saturday, April 22, the Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10K will take place early in the morning and run through the 2 p.m. matinee performance of “Hamilton.” Street closures will be in place on major roads surrounding the venue.

All patrons and travelers are urged to plan their travel accordingly and utilize ride-share services for those attending the 2 p.m. performance.

Travelers who are not attending “Hamilton” are encouraged to find alternate routes to their destination to avoid the area during these two weeks.
