The play was phenomenal. The cast, their voices, flare, and interpretation are truly
awe inspiring. I laughed harder than I have in months, I cried throughout multiple
songs, and was truly moved during certain scenes. The cast of characters played so
well off each other that I truly will cherish this event. No offense to the Broadway
production, but I wish they'd release a Chicago version of the soundrack because I
miss the depth, tenor, and sound of the cast which moved me from a night on
Broadway to a life changing moment.

ENJOYABLE IN EVERY WAY!
After hearing SO much about this show I wasn't left disappointed - Hamilton was enjoyable in
every way! The costumes and dancing are great but my favourite bit is def the songs... I got
goosebumps when they played 'Wait For It'! Why travel all the way to Broadway when you can
see it right here with an outstanding cast. Five stars!

A TOTALLY DIFFERENT AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE SHOW
A totally different and thoroughly enjoyable show that comes very
highly recommended by critics, the number of Tony Awards and
now myself! I got the chance to see this great show the night
after Trump shocked America and won the elections to be the
45th president of the USA.
In case you didn't know it's a hip-hop-r&b-urban take on the story
of one of America's founders Alexander Hamilton (who was
around for the 1st and 2nd presidents of the USA). I found the hip-
hop quite a refreshing change to the usual musicals. The set
design is quite simple (but effective) with very little to no change
throughout the show. I was impressed with clever use of the
turntable stage. Overall the production was, to me, well
rehearsed and sharp. Aaron Burr was particularly brilliant that
We were spoilt seat wise... being in the front stalls with an
excellent view. I suggest trying to have a pre-show drink in the
amazing Palmer House Hilton lobby - it's only a stones throw

EVERYTHING I IMAGINED BUT MORE. (CHICAGO)
I know the soundtrack. I have it memorized. It invades my day, my evenings, my
mornings. So I knew what to expect by the way of music. But the set, the choreography
and the emotions were beyond my expectations. It was funny. Chris Lee as Lafayette
and Jefferson brought the house to laughter multiple times. Ari Afsar brought us to
tears (sobs in one case) at the end. There was an audible collective audience gasp at
her finish. Last April was my birthday gift. This April is my daughter's birthday gift.

HAMILTON IS ENJOYABLE AND AMUSING!
The enormously successful ‘Hamilton’ has taken the theatre world by storm for its
innovative use of R&B and rap to retell the story, of the less-than-well-known life of
Alexander Hamilton, the Half French, Half British founding father of America. Set in
the 18th Century it tracks the trials and tribulations of Alexander Hamilton as he sets
out on George Washington’s staff to wrestle control of the 13 colonies, from Britain,
to create the independent nation. Deep in politics, the rap breaks out into full MC’ing
and large b-boy dance routines lavish many scenes. The story unravels in a light-
hearted contemporary style and unsurprisingly there is also a love theme pleated
into the story. Hamilton is an enjoyable and amusing way of retelling a story, that
utilises the culture, style and arts of our time. Think, Moulin Rouge / Les Miserable,
meets an easy-going Eight Mile.
Hamilton truly is an American musical for every American
My turn to experience this theatrical tour de force came a few weeks into the Chicago run... But how does one even start to review a musical so iconic it's already spawned its very own Off-Broadway satire show.
