Eileen from McCandless Pennsylvania
I was not sure what to expect so I listened to the sound track along with printed lyrics on youtube. It made all the difference in my enjoyment. I understood the plot and the sung lyrics. Yes, the singing was fast and hard to keep up with but you will enjoy it much more If you take the time to listen to the sound track with lyrics before you attend. All said, best musical I've ever seen and at 72 I've seen more than a few.

An incredible production with amazing singing, dancing and content! A must see. To help understand what’s going on a little better, I’d suggest reading a little bit about Hamilton on the internet before seeing this fast paced spectacular! If you have seats in the balcony , bring binoculars!
Arlene from Fripp Island, SC
Wonderful, amazing production. I knew the music and lyrics from a CD, but was blown away by the physicality of the show and the terrific choreography and dancers. The transitions among the many scenes were seamless. I have recommended the show to friends. I drove almost 5 hours to see the show and it was completely worth it (but Greenville is a great destination). I was grateful to learn of the production dates from friends who live in Greenwood.

GLAD WE LIVED TO SEE THEIR GLORY
Shea is a wonderful place to experience this mesmerizing performance by an incredible cast. True: you should expect a rather fast paced rap, at times, but even the unaccustomed ears should have little trouble picking it up, in particular if you treat yourself to the soundtrack upfront. We enjoyed it immensely, and Lafayette/Jefferson, Eliza, Hamilton, and the King were particularly outstanding. We attended the Nov 21 Matinee (I.e., day after Buffalo premiere), and had 1st row Loge seats, with perfect stage view and sound. The audience in the sold out theatre seemed to love it, too. I recommend you arrive early, to take in the stunning decor inside of Shea’s - another real treat.
Sarah from Boston, Massachusetts
Excellent show and stellar cast. I would see it again in a heartbeat. It lived up to the hype. For those worried about not understanding every word, familiarize yourself with the story history wise and you will be fine. It was a memorable trip to the theater for sure! Bravo!

BRILLIANT OPENING NIGHT PERFORMANCE IN BOSTON
The Angelica Touring cast hit the stage at the Boston Opera House in fine form! The acoustics (including additional portable speakers) were superb and the production itself, flawless. A first rate company presented this genius piece of art with big personality and flair. The seating is tight like many older theatres , with stunning ambiance Bravo!

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
