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.

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.

THE KING MADE THE THING

I got lost in the rap. King George made the show for me.

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.

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

SOUND QUALITY

The dialog was very difficult to understand! Not sure if it was the performers enunciations or the microphones, speakers, etc. Seated on the main floor & probably could understand 50% of what was said & less when rapped

INCREDIBLE SHOW, DISRESPECTFUL CROWD

I came to this performance as someone who has been following Hamilton since 2014. I know the words, I mother and occasionally sang along, and was ridiculed by the people sitting near me. They made me feel subhuman and like I had runes their experience purely through my enjoyment of it. Incredible show but ridiculously entitled guests. No one should have the right to dictate how someone else enjoys a performance and certainly shouldn’t make them feel inferior for enjoying the music and experience. Again five stars for the cast, zero stars for the people sitting near us who chose to destroy their own experience of the show by listening to my humming and the odd spoken word instead of the performance.

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
