Theatre-goers that weren’t stuck outside were forced to wait inside, packed in hallways until the issues were resolved.

The show started at about 8:10 p.m., 40 minutes later than its scheduled start time.

Hennepin Theatre Trust officials later told WCCO-TV that there was a technical issue with the soundboard, which has been fixed.

Some theatre-goers mentioned online that they saw a K-9 officer at the Orpheum. Officials said in a statement, “‘Hamilton’ takes security seriously and they travel with a K-9 to every tour market.”
