Description

April 2–May 5

Dallas Summer Musicals, in partnership with the Dallas Public Library and Seth Kaller, Inc, will unveil a collection of rare Founding Era documents and artifacts, which will be on display in the Music Hall lobby during the entire Dallas engagement of Hamilton. Included in the display is the Dallas Public Library’s original Dunlap broadside print of the Declaration of Independence (one of only 26 known copies), printed in Philadelphia on the night of July 4, 1776.

The unique collection of historic documents will be on display, free of charge, in the lobby of the Music Hall at Fair Park from April 2 through May 5 during regular box office hours and during each Hamilton performance (Monday 10am–6pm, Tuesday – Saturday 10am–end of intermission, Sunday noon–end of intermission).

In addition to the Declaration, Seth Kaller, Inc. and University Archives will be loaning an amazing collection of documents and artifacts from their unique Alexander Hamilton collection, including:
-One of Hamilton’s most revealing love letters to Elizabeth Schuyler, calling her “a little sorceress” who bewitched and rendered him “restless and unsatisfied with all about me.”
-A first edition of the “Reynolds Pamphlet” (in which Hamilton admits to infidelity but vigorously denies financial crimes) that survived Eliza’s attempt to have them all burned.
-Hamilton’s important financial papers, and his draft letter rallying to defeat Jefferson at all costs after Washington declined to run for a third term.
-Original letters and documents of Hamilton, Washington, Jefferson, Burr, and more.
-Alexander Hamilton Jr’s annotated copy of the Federalist Papers.
