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

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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, beatsRead full review
