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.

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.

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!!

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!

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.

HAMILTON X 2
Adored it in New York and then loved it in Chicago. I know SF will be brilliant. Don't miss it. It's everything people say, and more.

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.

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 lyriRead full review
