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.

2.0 star rating Robin Gerken from Tucson, Arizona


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

2.0 star rating Greg from Austin, Texas


I love the show and have seen 3 times. I hope Bass Hall and the staff can dial in the voice quality. I could not understand 85% of the words. Music is great, but it overpowered all the artist's voices. I hope the artist can slow down just a little to better dial-in Bass Hall's somewhat poor vocal acoustics.

My son and I waited for months with great anticipation to experience Hamilton in the famous Orpheum theater. However, the overall experience was such a huge disappointment that we left during intermission. The most obvious shortcoming was the sound system. It was weak and distorted. It had very little bass and the vocals were almost inaudible. As I'm sure many know that the Hamilton soundtrack has a hip hop feel to it, so hearing those songs without the proper amount of bass simply reduced the experience to that of a mediocre high school production. Oh and don't get me started about the tiny, bumpedy seats from the original "Ford's Theatre." C'mon Orpheum. Time to upgrade.

I lived in NYC for many years and regularly went to Broadway and off-Broadway plays and musicals...I love the theater! I've never before had the experience of not being able to hear/understand what was happening on stage for an entire production. At times, the overall volume seemed low, at other points the music (and bass) overwhelmed the actors rapping so what they were saying was unintelligible. My friend expressed the same problem at intermission. It was hugely disappointing and frustrating. This morning I am left with the strange experience of having seen a hit show last night and not having a clue what actually happened in the plot. The actors were talented and had a lot of energy, but if you don't already know the score well, you'll likely be lost.

After a 7 year wait and paying a king’s ransom for a ticket to Hamilton at the Belk Theater in Charlotte, I wished I had stayed home and watched it again on Disney +. There were a few good seasoned performers (Burr, Washington and the Schuyler sisters) who could not carry a too-young cast who didn’t have their hearts in it. The performance did not live up to the opus nor the history it portrayed. I’m inclined to think it can’t survive without Miranda.

This is the third production I've seen of Hamilton, and second at the Fox... and oh my, how has this quality fallen off. There is serious talent in the casts of these shows, and it is evident in certain pieces, but the technical production has taken a nose dive. Mics not functioning, sound unbalanced, and everything far too quiet. This is a show designed to fill the theatre with sound, and it was very difficult to even hear these actors... over the sounds of their footsteps and squeaking boots. There must have been a speaker blown at some point that went unfixed... because snare drums shouldn't sound like bees, and bass shouldn't sound like it's from next door.

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
