HAMILTON

Magnificent show. The music, acting, dance, sets were glorious. Captivating right from the start. Do NOT miss it! Energetic, precise, powerful.

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.

HAMILTON

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.

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.

5.0 star rating Samantha Graine from Richmond, Virginia

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

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
