The show was what I expected but the actors’ portrayals were lacking in energy & enthusiasm. Actors seemed tired & disinterested. King George was the bright spot. The audience deserved better.

GREAT WRITING, GREAT DANCING, SOME GREAT PERFORMANCES, MUCH OF THE SINGING UNTELLIGIBLE
Saw this at Hollywood Pantages on 10/16/21. I read all of the lyrics the night before, and am I ever glad I did. The only performer who was easy to understand was King George. The Washington character was so disappointing, since physically he had stage presence but he couldn't be understood. The Eliza character had good musical tone but was also hard to understand. Hamilton was good (and generally easily understood) but not outstanding. Burr was pretty good but not great. For all the hype and great reviews this show has received, it is inconceivable to me that such mediocre performances be acceptable. With so much incomprehensible singing, you will be totally lost if you don't pre-read the lyrics and synopsis of the story and it won't be enjoyable at all. Having said this, the music and dancing are top rate and it is a very creative and enjoyable adaption of Hamilton's story.

The singing was great. The cast at the April 7th matinee lacked the diversity of the original musical. The tone and the delivery of many lines did not sound natural.

It was a good performance, but not what I expected. My friends and I have season tickets to the Fox and were looking forward to this show. If I would have listened to the sound track before hand it might have been more enjoyable. It was hard to follow since most of the words in the songs were hard to make out. We saw the Sunday afternoon show on 4/24, and all I can say is that I was a little disappointed that it was hard to follow the charaters words since you couldn't understand what they were saying when they were singing.

SOUND WAS OFF
I loved the show, but something was very wrong with either the sound or some actors. Lafayette, for example - never understood a single word. He got slightly better as Jefferson later. Other actors were also hard to hear. Hamilton himself was clear. This same thing happened in JCS when it came through.

ACCOMPANY MUSIC WAY TOO LOUD
Great set costumes music singing but the music especially the bass drum of the drum set was set way way too loud. Much of what was said by the singers was completely covered by the over produced music and pounding bass drum/ sub bass keyboard. I felt sometimes like I was in a rock concert. heard several others at intermission discussing the same thing. During chorus songs where everyone was singing it was fine but individual songs or quiet areas of the songs the drums just covered the soloists and pounded the beat way over the top.

WHY ARE ALL THE 5 STAR REVIEWS LISTED FIRST? THE TRUTH NEEDS TO BE TOLD.
So excited to see Hamilton! Spent $$$ on great seats. Had the soundtrack on full volume every Saturday morning for weeks! While not big fans of rap, my husband and I have been exposed to rap by our daughter and every summer, all summer long as our 2 teen grandchildren spend summer break with us. SO DISAPPOINTED in the singing in the first act in particular. WE COULD NOT UNDERSTAND ANYTHING with the exception of solos. I thought it was the sound system- but this was the Kennedy Center! The dancing, the choreography, the set and scenery ALL EXCEPTIONAL. Thankfully we were able to understand and enjoy the second act but I feel I have been duped. We read the reviews, BUT DIDN’T SCROLL TO PAGE 20 WHERE THE 3 STAR and BELOW reviews ARE HIDDEN! NO, I SADLY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND anyone see this particular performance. At least not without subtitles.
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
