BRILLIANT OPENING NIGHT PERFORMANCE IN BOSTON

The Angelica Touring cast hit the stage at the Boston Opera House in fine form! The acoustics (including additional portable speakers) were superb and the production itself, flawless. A first rate company presented this genius piece of art with big personality and flair. The seating is tight like many older theatres , with stunning ambiance Bravo!

SO GREAT!!

The MN cast was wonderful and the show is so well done. Most of the cast was fabulous and King George was so truly perfect. He made the show even better than it already was.

THE BEST

Hamilton is as superlative as Les Mis was. I have seen it twice, trying to set up the 3rd, and listen to the score all the time. Lin Manuel Miranda with team of Questlove and Tarik from Jimmy Fallon's the Roots are fabulous in the musical production.

HAMILTON

I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t read any of the reviews. I completely enjoyed the play. I am not a hip-hop fan, but the hip-hop, pop, dance, rythim, was great. I’d love to see it again someday.

TALENT TO SPARE

I was so impressed with the cast that I wanted to be sure convey how impressive they were in a way that perhaps they might be able to read it themselves. They were absolutely phenomenal! I suppose anyone would expect the best performers at this kind of a venue and they did not disappoint!

POOR AUDIO

Saw it last night at Playhouse Square Cleveland and enjoyed it. I have to say though that the audio was poor. If Hamilton is to thoroughly be enjoyed the rapping and singing have to be understood. I could not understand the words they were singing half the time and it greatly reduced my enjoyment. I was very close to the stage so it wasn't like I was in the last row. I was glad to read others felt as I do. I have seen scores of Broadway shows at Playhouse Square and enjoyed the majority of them. I never experienced not being able to understand the dialogue though.

I GIVE IT ALL THE STARS IN THE SKY

I've been playing and watching musical theatre all my life and it's tempting to say that this is my favorite show of all time. The combination of subject matter, innovation, respect for tradition, and stellar execution, resulting in the highest critical and commercial success, will not be repeated for a long time. When I watch the opening of Hamilton, I get the same frisson of excitement that I get when I see "The Dance at the Gym" from West Side Story. This is Broadway history; this is a show for the ages.

HAMILTON IS THE MUST SEE EVENT OF THIS YEAR IN SN FRANCISCO

I went to the first two previews on friday and saturday march 10 and march 11. The show itself exceeds all the substantial hype and praise and is truly one of the very best of the 200+ musicals Ive seen on broadway and tour-its fast moving, musically brilliant, deeply emotional and will take you on a journey of one of the most incredible rivalry's in history between Burr and Hamilton. Often tour casts are not quite at the level of broadway casts-not the case here AT ALL. Joshua Henry as Burr and Michael Luwoye as Hamilton could do these roles on broadway today and probably will in the future. The cast also includes the fantastically funny tony nominated Rory OMalley as King George...hilarious. Yes the tickets are pricey, and yes its well worth it, Hamilton is an entertaining tour de force that will be regarded as a milestone in musical theatre achievement and impact-go see it before it leaves town!

HAMILTON: BEST. SHOW. EVER.

Had the great opportunity to see this show in Chicago over the weekend of the Fourth! Incredible - best show / best soundtrack / a MUST see. I'm at the airport now flying back to FL and am already looking for tickets in 2018, closer to home! Can't wait to see this show again!

5.0 star rating David Bell from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

CONTENT AND DIVERSITY

One of the best productions I have seen in my 75 years. What distinguishes it from the rest is the diversity of the cast. We have finally seen that the race and nationality of the cast rarely has to reflect the reality of the historical facts. A production dealing with such a complicated historical period is never easy. "Hamilton" succeeded beyond expectations. As a lifelong Philadelphian I recommend spending several days here to see and feel one of the historic settings

IT'S BETTER THAN SLICED BREAD.

OH MY GOSH!!! I love this musical so much. It's so new and it connects to the next generation. It's a family friendly show (with a couple exceptions). My family loves the show and my daughter loves playing role in the show. She is Eliza, because she has a lot of solos. Gosh, we love this show so much.

AMAZING PERFORMANCES

Played with the full heart and soul of the entire cast this is a show that should not be missed, performed by a remarkably talented group of artists. Bravo to all of you. This was the best birthday gift ever from my beautiful daughter! Thanks to all for a memory that will last for the next 69 years.

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

I've been listening to the soundtrack of Hamilton since it was made available. I loved the musical initially from it's brilliant lyrics and style. I could not have imagined how impactful the performance would be live. The actors and choreography make you want this theater experience to never end. There are several actors who performed their roles on Broadway including Emmy Raver-Lampman ( heart breaking Angelia), Isaiah Johnson (commanding George Washington), Michael Luwoye (perfect Hamilton), Joshua Henry (shining complex Burr) and hilarious Rory O'Malley as King George. Go for the same day tickets or do whatever you can to see this show.

HELPFUL SECURITY STAFF!

I saw Hamilton several weeks ago--the cast was incredibly talented! I'd also like to note how helpful the security staff was at the Orpheum at the beginning and end of the show. They were friendly and very attentive to any needs or questions I had. I will definitely be coming back to the Orpheum soon!

DESERVES EVERY AWARD POSSIBLE !!

With all broadway shows they go above and beyond, although with Hamilton, it makes all the other shows look like low-budget high school productions. The amount of energy, and ferocity was insane, and I simply could not wait to see it a second time. Or third. Or fourth. Really, I will never get tired of this performance. "Jazzy J's" whistle register simply knocked me out of my seat but not only that, it was also how she could control the audience's emotion with a single tear, or perfect placed crack in the voice while singing "Say No To This." I could talk about every single actor and actress in the production, but MY GOD the ensemble I think blew us all away(no pun intended) … I will say again, the energy was phenomenal, and I really could not think of a better place I would want to be in the World. Amazing Job.

INSPIRATIONAL

This is the second musical I've seen in my life, and I have my friend, who got me the ticket, to thank for that. Seeing this musical was like one of those moments that just stick with you for the rest of your life. The music was well orchestrated and the choreography was amazing, along with the lighting, humor, and costume. It was definitely a life changing moment. And the seats were amazing too! My friend had given me seat in row S, which is the Orchestra area. While it was pricey, I was able to get a good view of the people performing. Of course, due to the profanity of this show I wouldn't recommend children unless you're one of those parents who are really chill about it, but I would take someone who is okay with that kind of language. That day I didn't have time to eat somewhere nearby because I was coming from school, but I remember when I was watching something else around the area, I ate at Alexander's Steak House (Ha, get it? Alexander Hamilton?) and it was really good.

AMAZING! WORTH THE WAIT!

I have been excited to see this show since I first heard it was coming to San Fran. It was worth all the excitement. The show is fast moving and the actors are phenomenal. I loved the amazing energy in the crowd from the first moment A. Burr walked on stage until the final curtain calls. This is a must see

An incredible production with amazing singing, dancing and content! A must see. To help understand what’s going on a little better, I’d suggest reading a little bit about Hamilton on the internet before seeing this fast paced spectacular! If you have seats in the balcony , bring binoculars!

HAMILTON

Wonderful, amazing production. I knew the music and lyrics from a CD, but was blown away by the physicality of the show and the terrific choreography and dancers. The transitions among the many scenes were seamless. I have recommended the show to friends. I drove almost 5 hours to see the show and it was completely worth it (but Greenville is a great destination). I was grateful to learn of the production dates from friends who live in Greenwood.

AWESOME!!

I'm a 15 year old Latina and this musical is the musical that inspired me, it basically said to me "don't give up your dreams, cause no matter what you look like, you can get there, you can be on that stage." So, yeah, I can't wait for this to come. Not that I'd afford it.

GLAD WE LIVED TO SEE THEIR GLORY

Shea is a wonderful place to experience this mesmerizing performance by an incredible cast. True: you should expect a rather fast paced rap, at times, but even the unaccustomed ears should have little trouble picking it up, in particular if you treat yourself to the soundtrack upfront. We enjoyed it immensely, and Lafayette/Jefferson, Eliza, Hamilton, and the King were particularly outstanding. We attended the Nov 21 Matinee (I.e., day after Buffalo premiere), and had 1st row Loge seats, with perfect stage view and sound. The audience in the sold out theatre seemed to love it, too. I recommend you arrive early, to take in the stunning decor inside of Shea’s - another real treat.

5.0 star rating Eileen from McCandless Pennsylvania

OUTSTANDING, EXCEPTIONAL

I was not sure what to expect so I listened to the sound track along with printed lyrics on youtube. It made all the difference in my enjoyment. I understood the plot and the sung lyrics. Yes, the singing was fast and hard to keep up with but you will enjoy it much more If you take the time to listen to the sound track with lyrics before you attend. All said, best musical I've ever seen and at 72 I've seen more than a few.

5.0 star rating Dan from Santa Rosa, California

EXCEEDED SKY-HIGH EXPECTATIONS

My wife and I read the book, listened to the soundtrack, and bought the entire SHN season just to make sure we could get tickets to Hamilton. Our expectations simply could not have been higher. But the sheer energy of the performance, the pin-point choreography, the incredible voices, and of course Miranda's writing, combine to absolutely shatter our expectations and create an experience that simply must be witnessed to be believed. Hamilton is a production that will be taught in university courses for centuries and it deserves every bit of the attention is has received. To those who have yet to see it, I highly recommend listening to the soundtrack a few times beforehand. A little familiarity with the lyrics will allow you to better enjoy the rest of the production -- you'll be able to use less mental energy to understand what's being sung, and more to appreciate the staging and performances. It's awesome. Simply awesome.

AWESOME, WOW.

I didn't even know what "Broadway" was before September of 2016, the first time I heard of 'HAMILTON'. I was introduced by a friend, and I think it changed my life, digging up my love for singing and musical theatre. HAMILTON inspired me to find a part of me that I didn't even realize existed, which is quite inspiring. At this point, barely a year after, I don't listen to Shawn Mendes or Justin Bieber anymore. My iTunes consists of Hamilton, in the Heights, The Little Mermaid: the Musical, Legally Blonde, Dear Evan Hansen, Wicked, Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, Heathers, Something Rotten!, The Colour Purple, and many more. Thank you, Lin- Manuel Miranda! :)

3.5 STARS FOR OVERHYPED HAMILTON

I saw Hamilton at the Fabulous Fox in Atlanta. When the show began, there was thunderous applause from the audience... before they saw the show. That speaks to the hype and the bandwagon fans. The main complaint is that I concentrated very hard to hear what was being sung and still could only understand about half so I barely followed. I truly don’t understand why people cried. Did you not pay attention in history class? Spoiler alert, Burr shot Hamilton in a dual. I am a crier but didn’t feel touched at all. On the positive side, there was a lot of talent on the stage, actors, dancers, singing. The production was quite grand, but after re-listening to the music, talking to people, reading about the inception of the show, etc., I still don’t understand why the actors were multi-racial. Couldn’t Hamilton’s abolishionism have been better served had he been white?And Jefferson... he had an affair with a slave and produced a child, a cleaner story had he been white.

4.0 star rating Jay from Boston, Massachusetts

GREAT SHOW WITH A COUPLE OF MIS-CASTS

Saw the Boston production of Hamilton last week. The show, music and dancing are phenomenal. The actors who portrayed Lafayette/Jefferson and King George III stole the show with overflowing talent. I felt that both the actors who played Burr and Hamilton were mis-cast. The Burr actor demonstrated a beautiful tenor range during Dear Theodosia, but during the song Non-Stop, there is a forceful entrance that Burr makes when he finally has gotten angry. Those notes are more in the baritone range and I feel the actor couldn't deliver the intensity and volume required to portray that anger. There were a few other times I noticed he didn't have a strong lower range and I feel this detracted from his portrayal. I feel The actor who played Hamilton played him too politely. Hamilton is described as "obnoxious" but I didn't get that feeling from the actor. This was especially notable when the character is delivering what are supposed to be snide remarks. With that said, was enjoyable.

3.0 star rating Annie from St. Louis, Missouri

NOT SO GOOD

While the show was unique and dancing exceptional, the audio was not. I was sitting in orchestra section and could not understand the dialogue being sung. It was loud enough, but spoken so rapidly, it was like listening to another language. I actually dozed off a few times during the show from boredom. Certainly not your typical musical, but not for audiences over 35 unless you are really into rap music and can understand the almost incoherent verbiage. A friend of mine purchased the audio tape in January and was glad. She was at the same showing and had a much better understanding of the dialogue, thought she too could not make out some of the words being sung. Guess the new age of music requires a study before viewing. .

3.0 star rating Gary Christopher from Atlanta, Georgia

SADLY-OVERHYPED

The sets and choreography are very well done, acting is solid, and the history is so so. King George was hilarious. Why did it leave me wanting more for the exorbitant price I paid? First of all several initial songs were hard to follow for my untrained ears...some were unintelligible. Others were in the same place as me. There is a wonderful story to be told that was wanting because of the new age rap and street culture feel.. It is a musical but unlike any other musical I have witnessed. I yearned for more substance. It seemed to me that some people cheer more for the political statement being made about today than the treasure present in real life in the past. I have seen Jersey Boys 5 times, Carole King three times, The Million Dollar Quartet 4 Times, The Sound of Music 6 times, Memphis and Dream Girls several times.. I love musicals and I am a history buff, particularly founding father history. This one just did not resonate with me even though I wanted it to.

HAMILTON - APRIL 21, 2018

For the money I paid, I was severely underwhelmed. I took my daughter, who is a big fan of the original cast and the songs. However, this cast, was really not that good. Hamilton, was okay. Handsome, but just okay. Eliza was good in the first act, but was much better in the second act. Angelica was amazing in both acts. My biggest complaint would be Washington. He was so hard to understand. I had no idea what he was singing. A very handsome man who looked the part, just couldn't understand him. Lafayette/Jefferson was very funny, and not as hard to understand, but still was challenging to understand every word he was singing. Also the actor who played Madison, he too was hard to understand. I felt for all the money I paid, the cast would be top notch. The best performance was King George. He was spot on and truly a talented actor. I wish I could get my money back. I feel very cheated from what I saw. I never have spent so much money to be this disappointed.

HAMILTON WAS GREAT, BUT THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE FELL SHORT

I'm not hard to please, and as I said above I enjoyed watching Hamilton. It was very entertaining: I've never seen anything quite like it. I rate both the Lion King & Les Miserables higher, but it's in the top 5 for most memorable shows. The Boston Opera House, however, actively tried to spoil that experience by treating theater goers more like sardines being crammed into a can than people who were paying a lot of money for a once in a lifetime experience. Mobil tickets (displayed on your phone & not printable beforehand) are the in-thing now, & it's hard enough bringing each barcode up on your phone if it's more than just you. For the 4 people in my group I had to show each of our tickets 5 times to get to our seats. It's expected at the door, but the ushers are supposed to help, not block your path and demand to see your tickets repeatedly. Someone in the wrong seat in a full house will be caught: the harassment is uncalled for and rude. It made a 5 star show a 3 star experience.

2.0 star rating John H from Boston, Massachusetts

THE SOUND WAS A FACTOR (AND UNFORTUNATELY SO)

I'm 39 and definitely not losing my hearing; however, I was in the upper deck and could understand about 25% of what was said. The song tempos are relatively fast and I'm sure the actors were enunciating their lines, however, it didn't definitely sound that way. Much of it sounded like gibberish. My father (71 years old) understood about 5%. It became a material part of our experience - too bad! I encourage a headphone option.

DISAPPOINTED

My husband surprised me with Hamilton tickets. I was beyond excited. I spent the day of the show in a state of giddy anticipation. But, sadly, I was underwhelmed. We got the understudy for Hamilton, and he was very flat to me. At first I thought I was just used to Lin- Manuel Miranda from the original cast recording and that I would adapt after a few numbers, but to me he lacked the energy and charisma the role requires. I thought the actor who played Aaron Burr played the role too broadly and was miscast in general. Similarly, I felt the actress who played Eliza wasn’t right for her role and lacked vocal chops. And overall, the rapping wasnt’ that great. I’m glad I saw it, but I can’t say that this touring production was worth the ticket price. .

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.)

2.0 star rating Cathy from Columbus, Ohio

UNDERWHELMING

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!

HAMILTON IN CINCINNATI

SURPRISINGLY HORRIBLE VOCAL ABILITIES OF SOME CAST MEMBERS. I have seen many great performances here. This was not one of them. This was by far the biggest disappointment of any. While the story is awesome, the music and orchestra great, the costumes wonderful, and the choreography beautiful, some of the vocal abilities of major characters shocked me - in a really bad way. Eliza’s vocal abilities were so bad that it ruined the entire show for me. I saw Hamilton in Chicago, and this Cincinnati performance was ruined by 2 of the main characters, specifically Eliza and George Washington. So sad for the rest of the cast who are very talented and no doubt work hard - unfortunately Eliza and Geo W made the entire show a failure. I have never heard a worse voice in a performance than the Cincinnati Eliza. How in the world did these 2 performers get their roles? Hamilton on tour must be desperate. Sorry, but true. I feel very cheated, knowing how great this should have been.

5.0 star rating Chancellor Wyman from Detroit, Michigan

FAR SURPASSED MY EXPECTATIONS

The one thing that makes this score amazing is that it's completely sung/rapped throughout so that pretty much the entire show is caught on the OBC recording. I had listened to it a few times because I was afraid I wasn't going to catch what was going on live as a result but I was totally wrong. My wife and I were fully engaged with the staging, the musical and lyrical genius of Lin Manuel Miranda, the emotions, and just the overall swagger of the performances. King George III was a hilarious standout along with Jefferson. I also loved that the actor who played Washington, Paul Oakley Stovall, kept a more authoritative bearing as opposed to engaging in the street level squabbling that happened between Hamilton and Jefferson, among others. I didn't want it to be over. I definitely need to see it again.

HAMILTON WITH A LITTLE DETROIT FLARE

I have owned the soundtrack (which gives you the whole show) for years and have listened to it... a hundred?? times by now, so I know I have expectations of how the songs should be sung. This Company sings them a little faster and overall with a little more edge, but I didn't mind it at all. Instead I felt it was Hamilton delivered with a little Detroit flare sprinkled on it. The same with the dance moves, based on clips the different Ham accounts have posted on YouTube. This Company does an excellent job of giving you the same great Broadway play but puts their own stamp on it, which has to be really hard to do on such a well recognized work, so I applaud them 1000x over for achieving that. The ONLY concrit I would give is that the orchestra plays the songs a little fast and the conductor should read his/her actors better on that front. I didn't totally mind the faster speed (just slightly - like a beat to 1.5 beats faster tempo) since it went throughout the entire play BUT it did cause some lines to get muddled in the hurried delivery (two of our 4 party hadn't ever heard the songs and didn't catch some awesome key lines like 'when I meet T.J...include women in the sequel' because of the speed). The faster speed also doesn't seem to allow the actors to make their own acting choices about maybe holding or emphasizing a note for the development of their character. I noticed what I thought was this issue in the song 'Burn'. It's a very emotional and powerful song and the orchestra and actress didn't sound in sync in the first few lines, causing the actress to have to (like a pro!!) catch up without making it obvious. I think the Conductor of the Fisher orchestra needs to correct here to allow the actors to hold or emphasize, or even slow for dramatization, the notes as they see fit for the purposes of their portrayal of their characters. I understand that has to be incredibly hard to achieve that balance in a live show but hopefully they will get that worked out in future rehearsals. Obviously the play is world renowned with many awards so everyone already knows it's a great show.

EVEN BETTER THAN NEW YORK !

My son and I went opening week and we both loved it. We saw Hamilton in New York in 2017, (not original cast). We felt this one was better, especially Eliza. I could understand every word, and so could many people around us even though many don't listen to hip hop/rap.

5.0 star rating MS from New Orleans, Louisiana

GREAT SHOW!

Went into the show with indifference. From the opening act to the finale, Hamilton was very entertaining, very interesting and very different from the typical Broadway musical. There was an energy from the cast that transferred to the audience. Perhaps the rap musical format did it because that was quite different. Can’t vouch for the accuracy of the history and the cast representation of historical figures was unusual and different. Nonetheless, Hamilton exceeded the pre-show hype for us. If you like theater, this play is a must.

IMPRESSIVE 2ND PERFORMANCE IN DETROIT

It's always a challenge to be fair to a play that is based on a book you loved and have read. Ron Chernow, the author of the amazing biography Hamilton, writes with power, grace and authority. The play is a very creative tour de force, but a derivative at best. The first Act could use some work. The second Act was brilliant. Always good to be at the iconic Fisher Theater.The sound system could use some tweaking.

DISAPPOINTED IN VOCALISTS: 3 AND HALF STARS

I went to the Thursday night showing. I get it: the lyrics are fast and tongue twisting and some actors rap with a french accents. However, I wasn't impressed. The cast needed to enunciate their words more. I was shocked the caliber of vocalists weren't as high as the cost of the tickets (I was 14 rows back from the stage). Also, the music often drowned out the voices of Hamilton and Burr (this should be fixed BEFORE the show). In this regard, I felt cheated; I couldn't enjoy the show anymore because I was stressed about IF the cast members would be intelligible in the next scene and IF I'd be able to hear them. I know the lyrics by heart but my family does not, and it was heartbreaking when one turned to me, threw up his hands in frustration and said "I have no clue what they're saying". Solid acting. Beautiful dancing. The Eliza and Angelica actresses NAILED their parts. But the lyrics in particular are what make the show unique and we couldn't hear half of them. I'm devastated.

SHAKESPEAREAN

Lin-Manuel Miranda has channeled Shakespeare with Hamilton! Each character is real, witty and relatable! This is well worth the time to enjoy musical theater at it's best. Rivals Rogers and Hammerstein and Andrew Lloyd Webber!

AMAZING!!

I saw this show in 2018. It’s the best show I’ve ever been to, and I hope to see it again! Would definitely recommend!!

HAMILTON HYPE

Lots of hype around the show maybe raised expectations too high. The show was good, but not spectacular. Hard to follow the rap pace, plus the phrasing used in rap, so the story gets lost. Choreography is minimal and the majesty of typical musical numbers just isn’t there. Have been a season ticket holder for 10 years and would rank this show in the bottom 25% of shows.

MY FIRST SHOW

This was my first show that I have ever attended. I did not know what to expect, but I am a fan. I loved the show from beginning to end!! Nothing short of amazing the cast was so great the dancers, lighting, music I loved everything about it!!!

BETTER THE SECOND TIME AROUND

I saw it several months ago in London and I came back wiser after hearing the CD a few dozen times and reading up on the history. It was magnificent in Baltimore, the touring company interpreted a few songs differently but it added to the overall production. When people criticize, I don't think they understand it is not meant to be biographical or a social critique of the time. It is an allegory that is based on history. It presents America as a vision and an ideal, that is still alive today despite always being threatened by forces within and without. One that we always have to work toward. To that end, it succeeds brilliantly.

ALL STAR CAST ESPECIALLY NIK WALKER WHO TOOK IT TO ANOTHER LEVEL OF GREATNESS

I secretly worried I was setting myself up for disappointment by owning the original soundtrack and obsessing over everything Hamilton months before I actually saw the play in KC. But I had nothing to worry about. The cast was amazing and everything that went into the production was top notch. A special shout out to Mr. Walker for his exceptional performance. Your rendition of "Wait for it" had me in tears and by the end of the show...man I was rooting for Burr! hahaha. Go see this play. You won't regret it.

GREAT PERFORMANCE -HAMILTON

The costumes, the performers, THE SHOW! I travelled two hours to see one of the best performances in my life. Truly grateful to see the diversity not only on the stage but in the audience. Thankful for Lin-Manuel Miranda💕

SPECTACULAR!!

A history lesson in song, just remarkable!! I laughed (the King cracked me up), I cried and I continuously marveled at the talent. Their voices were ridiculous!!! So glad I was able to see such a phenomenal show!

HOW DISAPPOINTING

I saw Hamilton a few months ago in New York and was blown away, so I sprung at the chance to see it close to home. I saved up and bought a ticket in the orchestra section. I was horribly disappointed. Thomas Jefferson was the only truly enjoyable performance. It seems like the cast had never heard the original Broadway recording - they changed notes, pitches, and even a few words! Eliza seemed to be holding back, and she cried through the entire performance of “Burn” to the point that I was just waiting for it to be over. The acting was non existent. If a performer wasn’t in the ensemble, they barely moved. A far cry from what I was expecting and I wish I’d saved up to take a trip to see the New York performance again instead.

GREAT SHOW

Loved this performance in Okc. The actors did a great job. It took awhile getting into the rap.. Note : the civic center does have hearing devices at the reception desk. It is also equipped for those hearing aids with T-Coil.

UNDERWHELMING AT PROCTORS - SCHENECTADY., NY

I saw Hamilton at Proctors, in Schenectady, NY on August 14, 2019. I was so filled with anticipation, yet walked away disappointed. No one told the people in the sound booth that when balancing the sound system, the singers should be louder than the orchestra, not the other way around. Fortunately, I knew the words, and was able to follow along. But, when most of the people sitting around me, whom I did not know, started looking at each other asking, "Can you hear them singing?", I knew it wasn't just me. Plus, many of the leads were not enunciating their lyrics, which made it even worse. The song tempos were too fast in a few songs, making it difficult for the performers to keep up. With that being said, there were captivating moments, especially in Act 2. The slower songs with minimal orchestration were the best...because they could be heard. Shame on the Hamilton tour for not getting the sound correct, especially for the high ticket price.

POOR SOUND QUALITY

I was excited to see such a highly rated show, but the rap was mostly unintelligible. The actors are extremely talented dancers and singers but due to the poor sound quality, many of the the jokes were missed and the show was not enjoyable. Stay for the second half. It is better after the intermission. King George was hysterical.

ORCHESTRA OVERWHELMS VOICES

Wonderful acting, singing and dancing But was frustrated by inability to understand half the songs. Words were muddled, maybe a combination of acoustics, speed of the song, orchestra louder than the singers. As much as I enjoyed overall show, I feel like I missed a lot of the content

FABULOUS EXPERIENCE

Great historical content...effective use of humor...fantastic choreography. The seat at the Forrest Theater could be used for torture.

Magnificent show. The music, acting, dance, sets were glorious. Captivating right from the start. Do NOT miss it! Energetic, precise, powerful.

UNINTELLIGIBLE

I went with my husband, our two teenage daughters and my mother. Our daughters were very familiar with the songs and loved the show! My mother and I expected to love it but could only understand about 5% of the words. After struggling for 90 minutes to comprehend what was going on, the two of us finally gave up and left during the intermission. My husband was able to enjoy it somewhat. Thankfully, we drove two cars. We noticed several other people who left during intermission also.

BEST MUSICAL -NEVER A DULL MOMENT!

I was excited from the beginning to the end! The musical was even better than the book. The venue was comfortable and I could see everything. My seats were in the middle, in a middle row and usually I'm not fond that section but it was wonderful because of the design of the theater. I was bummed that I didn't see it on Broadway but seeing it in Atlanta was just as great. I took my daughter along...We cried and laughed all night. BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER! I MUST see it again.

WOW just absolutely amazing. Enjoyed the cast, the vocals, and the performance, OH and the dancing! The orchestra kicked ass. Loved King George

EVEN BETTER THAN THE SOUNDTRACK!

In the months leading up to the show, I had listened to the Broadway soundtrack countless times, so I was worried that I might be underwhelmed by a touring cast with a different sound. It was (slightly) different. And yet, it was still utterly brilliant. What made it even better in person was the facial expressions, the gestures, the lighting, the dancers! The Schuyler sisters sounded like a real life duplicate of the CD. Eliza's voice was mesmerizing and Angelica's bold and sensational. The king delivered well-placed comic relief. And the actor who played Thomas Jefferson is a truly gifted physical actor. His gestures and movements made this Jefferson an unexpectedly hilarious and pompous character. Of course, the two main characters are Burr and Hamilton - and they did not disappoint. My 16-year-old daughter smiled and gasped and cried (more than once) through both acts. Inside, I was glowing with the knowledge that this experience is one she and I will cherish for a lifetime.

TOO BAD WE COULD NOT UNDERSTAND THE WORDS

My husband and I were excited to see Hamilton in Milwaukee. Our seats were excellent, but when a play’s story is dependent on the audience understanding what the actors are singing, it fell short. My husband understood nothing and I struggled to pick out words. Very disappointing.

AMERICAN THEATER AT IT’S BEST

Hamilton is American Theater for the 21rst Century. The staging, cast, the hip hop score, and those wonderful lyrics are unforgettable! Not to be missed!! The standing ovation and the enthusiastic applause by the audience at the end was well deserved and received by the talented young cast.

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 b
