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 evening. 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 away!

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.
