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.

THE SOUND WAS A FACTOR (AND UNFORTUNATELY SO)

I'm 39 and definitely not losing my hearing; however, I was in the upper deck and could understand about 25% of what was said. The song tempos are relatively fast and I'm sure the actors were enunciating their lines, however, it didn't definitely sound that way. Much of it sounded like gibberish. My father (71 years old) understood about 5%. It became a material part of our experience - too bad! I encourage a headphone option.

IM GLAD I WENT

im glad that i went, but i was let down when i heard hamilton and aaron burr trying to “rap.” the actors sounded like they had never even heard the original cast. they had very little emotion if any and there were a lot of parts where they were off rhythm. i could have been a better aaron burr.

UNDERWHELMING

My husband and I were greatly looking forward to this... but we ended up leaving during intermission. First, the positives: King George was easy to love, and the choreography was a delight. Unfortunately, the rest of the production fell flat. The rapping was mostly unintelligible, and cast members were both off-key and lacked compelling singing voices. The acting was also a miss. The writing / dialogue left much to be desired despite the acclaim, and I found that the jokes generally fell flat. (I have seen a number of Broadway shows in New York and they were all vastly higher in quality.) It was probably the most disappointing musical I have been to - possibly because my expectations were so high. I would save my money up for another show.

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
