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

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.

IMPRESSIVE 2ND PERFORMANCE IN DETROIT
It's always a challenge to be fair to a play that is based on a book you loved and have read. Ron Chernow, the author of the amazing biography Hamilton, writes with power, grace and authority. The play is a very creative tour de force, but a derivative at best. The first Act could use some work. The second Act was brilliant. Always good to be at the iconic Fisher Theater.The sound system could use some tweaking.

ORCHESTRA OVERWHELMS VOICES
Wonderful acting, singing and dancing But was frustrated by inability
to understand half the songs. Words were muddled, maybe a combination
of acoustics, speed of the song, orchestra louder than the singers.
As much as I enjoyed overall show, I feel like I missed a lot of the content

The dialog was very difficult to understand! Not sure if it was the performers enunciations or the microphones, speakers, etc.
Seated on the main floor & probably could understand 50% of what was said & less when rapped

HAMILTON WAS GREAT, BUT THE BOSTON OPERA HOUSE FELL SHORT
I'm not hard to please, and as I said above I enjoyed watching
Hamilton. It was very entertaining: I've never seen anything quite
like it. I rate both the Lion King & Les Miserables higher, but it's in
the top 5 for most memorable shows.
The Boston Opera House, however, actively tried to spoil that
experience by treating theater goers more like sardines being
crammed into a can than people who were paying a lot of money
for a once in a lifetime experience. Mobil tickets (displayed on your
phone & not printable beforehand) are the in-thing now, & it's hard
enough bringing each barcode up on your phone if it's more than
just you. For the 4 people in my group I had to show each of our
tickets 5 times to get to our seats. It's expected at the door, but the
ushers are supposed to help, not block your path and demand to
see your tickets repeatedly. Someone in the wrong seat in a full
house will be caught: the harassment is uncalled for and rude. It
made a 5 star show a 3 star experience.
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
