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Great historical content...effective use of humor...fantastic choreography.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.

HAMILTON

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.

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
