OVERHYPED AND UNDERWHELMING

This was all about the hype. The production was mediocre at best. This great story was lost amid poorly developed characters and rhythm. Most of the story takes place behind the scenes with the characters merely telling telling us about it in Dr Seuss-like fashion. For a few minutes, the first act after the intermission gave me hope. What a shame we weren’t shown more historical action and debate. It wasn’t always clear who each of the characters were. The women characters seemed to have been brought in as an aside, and did nothing to add to Hamilton’s story. Even Hamilton’s son death story was under whelming. Overall, it was boring, and certainly not worth the ticket price.

VERY WEAK CASTING

I saw Hamilton a few years ago in London not knowing a thing about the play except all the hype and I left blown away! I would have given it 5 of 5 stars. I was very excited when it finally came to Toronto and went with my family...to huge disappointment. The casting was well below what we are used to in Toronto and the biggest shame was that Hamilton himself was probably the worst of the worst. He lacked charisma and spunk. The second key actor, his wife, was probably the second weakest performer?!?! The rest were average to fantastic - The king, Burr and Jefferson were fantastic. Anyway, I had huge expectations after seeing it in London and this production, uncharacteristically for a Mirvish Production, failed big time.

GO TO NY

We saw HamIlton Last night in Miami. Wow, I will go to New York next time. Poor acoustics. I could not understand what was said at all times. Not ready cast. Scenography can be recreated fir $500 at Ikea. Ziff Theater is horrible and to top it off two seats from me there was a woman sneezing and coughing so much that people tokd het she should have stayed home. Not worth it at all.

JUST OKAY

While the individual performances were great, overall I would give Hamilton a pass. Much of the singing was rap, with very loud music, making it difficult to understand, and follow the dialogue. Not being from the U.S. and familiar with their history, made it difficult to relate to.

HAMILTON

I didn’t know it was a rap. If your young and enjoy rap I’m sure it was great but I did not enjoy it. I could not understand most of the characters, Thomas Jefferson was the worst I never understood a word he said. The heavy sit guy was hit and miss as was the others. Plus our forefathers were not black, and definitely did not know what rap was. So sorry I wasted my money on this show.

DISAPPOINTMENT

I couldn’t wait to see it and was so disappointed. I couldn’t understand much of the singing, so I was lost most of the play. Amazing voices and acting, but I would not recommend to anyone.

HAMILTON

During the first Act it was impossible to hear the singing over the music. I have never seen the play or the movie and not being able to understand the story that was being told was very disappointing. Centennial Hall on the University of Arizona Campus in Tucson AZ was able to make adjustments for the 2nd Act, but at this point we are 2 hours in and my excitement for the night was gone. Very disappointing

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
