TOO BAD WE COULD NOT UNDERSTAND THE WORDS

My husband and I were excited to see Hamilton in Milwaukee. Our seats were excellent, but when a play’s story is dependent on the audience understanding what the actors are singing, it fell short. My husband understood nothing and I struggled to pick out words. Very disappointing.

AMERICAN THEATER AT IT’S BEST

Hamilton is American Theater for the 21rst Century. The staging, cast, the hip hop score, and those wonderful lyrics are unforgettable! Not to be missed!! The standing ovation and the enthusiastic applause by the audience at the end was well deserved and received by the talented young cast.

DON'T BUY THE HYPE

The first act is almost exclusively rap. Be prepared to miss a significant portion of the story line and character development. The second does have some conventional music. The story is great. The staging and choreography are good. Hamilton did not live up to my expectations.

AMAZING!!

At first I questioned that it would be the same with the touring cast, but after a few minutes I thought it was just as good, maybe better. The singing was amazing as with the dancing and comedy.10/10 do recommend

A GREAT PLAY TURNED MEDIOCRE (FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY!)

OK, I know it was the night before thanksgiving, but to have the top four parts being performed by understudies shows contempt for an audience that was paying top dollar. The Hamilton understudy actually was great but Burr, Washington, and Eliza parts were emotionally kind of dead. There also might have been replacement or missing musicians that night as well. The timing was sometimes off and barely audible at times. Several of the other characters were spectacular and I am guessing that the performance was great the other nights. So why did we Wednesday customers lose out? You don't expect a regional touring show to match the Broadway or Chicago versions, but I expect the same effort. Didn't get it the night before TG.

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
