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.

MUST SEE

We just saw Hamilton in New York and it is indescribable. The music, characters, choreography, storyline, depth of emotion from pathos to humor---all these and more create an experience that is not to be missed. I hope to see it again in Columbus!!

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.

What we thought

brilliant Engrossing UNFORGETTABLE

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 was inspired by his love for 90's rap and hip hop, and Broadway - it's in this mash-up that we experience music which moves by lyrics, beats
