HAMILTON AFTER COVID

I saw Hamilton at the Pantages four times, 1st 3 OUTSTANDING. Actors, orchestra, choreography, staging, set, writing, lighting, Pure BRILLIANCE! This time the set/lighting/choreography, amazing. The writing is still brilliant except where characters changed lines. Alexander said meow instead of "that's true" and other examples plus lines being left out. I question the casting decisions. Burr, Angelica, and Eliza lacked luster and vocal ability. They missed notes. The actor playing Burr lacked presence and vocal ability that must come with Burr. It is Broadway in Los Angeles not a home town show. Outstanding performances were from Carvens Lissaint, Ruben Carbajal, and Rory O’Malley. Westman gave a decent performance. Maybe they were having a bad day. Another review I read made similar remarks about the cast. The most disappointing part was the music. There wasn't a full live orchestra. There was only one person in the pit. You can still feel the genius that is Miranda's work.

LUDICROUS

I have a problem with taking actual historical that lived portraying them in caricatures that are absolutely nothing like them in any way, shape or form. What next, a blond, blue eyed, petite white woman as Martin Luther King, Jr.? The music, actors and orchestra was great, but the whole premise is just preposterous.

HAMILTON IN TEMPE

It was fun seeing Hamilton later in their fist week. We saw the alternate Aaron Burr in this production. It must have been an off night as the sound was very uneven. Sometimes i heard a lush chorus and sometimes not. The actors seem to change octaves or keys periodically and the dancers were good though not always in sync. It was a collection of talented people who had glimmers of great but not quite. I cant wait to see them after they have had a chance to work together for awhile and find their way. Characters like Lafayette and King George would begin a song in their characters accent then fall into an american accent. During a duel scene i could swear a part of the singing was missing. There was a silent gap in the piece for a moment. It was definitely a room full of talent. I cant wait to see what they do.

ENUNCIATE AND/OR SOUND ISSUES

I liked the energy, the costumes, the lighting, and the singing- when I could understand it. I was in. VIP seating, row 9 and sometimes I couldn’t hear, much less understand what they were saying. Those around me agreed. This was the first time I’ve ever seen it, so the enunciation was important to me. Tip to others, learn the songs before you go

GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS

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.

HAMILTON GREENSBORO

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.

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
