I'm a 15 year old Latina and this musical is the musical that inspired me, it basically said
to me "don't give up your dreams, cause no matter what you look like, you can get
there, you can be on that stage." So, yeah, I can't wait for this to come. Not that I'd

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!

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.

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.

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 didn't even know what "Broadway" was before September of 2016, the first
time I heard of 'HAMILTON'. I was introduced by a friend, and I think it
changed my life, digging up my love for singing and musical theatre.
HAMILTON inspired me to find a part of me that I didn't even realize existed,
which is quite inspiring. At this point, barely a year after, I don't listen to
Shawn Mendes or Justin Bieber anymore. My iTunes consists of Hamilton, in
the Heights, The Little Mermaid: the Musical, Legally Blonde, Dear Evan
Hansen, Wicked, Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, Heathers,
Something Rotten!, The Colour Purple, and many more. Thank you, Lin-
Manuel Miranda! :)

3.5 STARS FOR OVERHYPED HAMILTON
I saw Hamilton at the Fabulous Fox in Atlanta. When the show began,
there was thunderous applause from the audience... before they saw
the show. That speaks to the hype and the bandwagon fans. The
main complaint is that I concentrated very hard to hear what was
being sung and still could only understand about half so I barely
followed. I truly don’t understand why people cried. Did you not pay
attention in history class? Spoiler alert, Burr shot Hamilton in a dual. I
am a crier but didn’t feel touched at all. On the positive side, there was
a lot of talent on the stage, actors, dancers, singing. The production
was quite grand, but after re-listening to the music, talking to people,
reading about the inception of the show, etc., I still don’t understand
why the actors were multi-racial. Couldn’t Hamilton’s abolishionism
have been better served had he been white?And Jefferson... he had an
affair with a slave and produced a child, a cleaner story had he been
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
