BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN IN GRAND RAPIDS
We have seen some great theater in grand Rapids and 15 years of being season-ticket holders but Tuesdays night performance of Hamilton is the best ever! Congratulation warmers and thank you Broadway Grand Rapids. The only disappointment is we did not see Mike Lloyd introducing the event.

What a show. I had listened to the soundtrack probably 100 times prior to the show and wondered how this cast would compare - they did not disappoint. I would see again. From the easy parking beneath the performance hall to the sky walk to "THE KITCHEN" (which was 5 Stars eating) - such an enjoyable, memorable evening. Also kudo's to the DeVos Performance Hall ushers for keeping late comers from getting to their seat until a break in the music as it was so much more enjoyable to us already seated patrons.

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! :)

GREAT SHOW WITH A COUPLE OF MIS-CASTS
Saw the Boston production of Hamilton last week. The show, music and dancing are phenomenal. The actors who portrayed Lafayette/Jefferson and King George III stole the show with overflowing talent. I felt that both the actors who played Burr and Hamilton were mis-cast. The Burr actor demonstrated a beautiful tenor range during Dear Theodosia, but during the song Non-Stop, there is a forceful entrance that Burr makes when he finally has gotten angry. Those notes are more in the baritone range and I feel the actor couldn't deliver the intensity and volume required to portray that anger. There were a few other times I noticed he didn't have a strong lower range and I feel this detracted from his portrayal. I feel The actor who played Hamilton played him too politely. Hamilton is described as "obnoxious" but I didn't get that feeling from the actor. This was especially notable when the character is delivering what are supposed to be snide remarks. With that said, was enjoyable.

Saw it last night at Playhouse Square Cleveland and enjoyed it. I have to say though that the audio was poor. If Hamilton is to thoroughly be enjoyed the rapping and singing have to be understood. I could not understand the words they were singing half the time and it greatly reduced my enjoyment. I was very close to the stage so it wasn't like I was in the last row. I was glad to read others felt as I do. I have seen scores of Broadway shows at Playhouse Square and enjoyed the majority of them. I never experienced not being able to understand the dialogue though.

THE KING MADE THE THING
I got lost in the rap. King George made the show for me.

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
