IM GLAD I WENT
im glad that i went, but i was let down when i heard hamilton and aaron burr trying to “rap.” the actors sounded like they had never even heard the original cast. they had very little emotion if any and there were a lot of parts where they were off rhythm. i could have been a better aaron burr.

The Feb.2, performance at the Ohio Theatre of Hamilton was musical theatre at it’s best. All the elements that make musical theatre were so well done: acting, singing, Instrumentals, costumes, sets, props, lighting, sound, choreography, dancing, etc. I honestly don’t think I could have seen it better performed on Broadway. Bravo to everyone involved in this truly diverse ensemble production. Lin-Manuel Miranda is truly a genius as well as a humanitarian. ( I am 72 and was seated in the mezzanine.)

My husband and I were greatly looking forward to this... but we ended up leaving during intermission. First, the positives: King George was easy to love, and the choreography was a delight. Unfortunately, the rest of the production fell flat. The rapping was mostly unintelligible, and cast members were both off-key and lacked compelling singing voices. The acting was also a miss. The writing / dialogue left much to be desired despite the acclaim, and I found that the jokes generally fell flat. (I have seen a number of Broadway shows in New York and they were all vastly higher in quality.) It was probably the most disappointing musical I have been to - possibly because my expectations were so high. I would save my money up for another show.

MORE THAN I EXPECTED & LESS THAN I EXPECTED
I was extremely disappointed by the choice Eliza's character made to shave half of her head before the show. It looked terrible and I thought her performance was only so-so. Her ending gasp sounded ridiculous rather than moving. The king over-reached and seemed more about himself rather than the performance. The dancers, however, were absolutely remarkable in bringing to life the emotional charge that was somewhat lacking with the performers. I did greatly enjoy the characters of Hamilton, Washington, and Jefferson.

Everything was AMAZING! I saw this twice and I satisfied each time! I loved all the songs each person who was cast did an amazing job! I was so inspired by this show! Not only was it outstanding, but it also helps you learn the history of Alexander Hamilton! My mother, friends, aunt, cousin, and I were blown away with the performance! I loved all of the characters but my favorite were Alexander Hamilton, Lafayette, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison! These characters were what I was expecting and even MORE! They did an outstanding job had so much expression and emotion! Their singing was also very astounding as well!

What a profound performance... I have heard that historically it is quite accurate. Need to see a few times to engage fully! Well done!

This is theatre at its best!
This is what our reviewer, Nicola Quinn, had to say when she saw Hamilton on Broadway in 2015: Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the book, music and lyrics for Hamilton, inspired by his love for 90's rap and hip hop, and the classic musical scores of Broadway's bRead full review
