3.0 star rating A.S. from Norfolk, Virginia


The three stars go to the orchestra, scenery & brilliant staging, but the singing was highly disappointing; the director didn’t understand that hip hop requires extra attention to diction. I agree with other reviewers who said “mostly unintelligible” and “much of it sounded like gibberish”. Other than Hamilton I don’t listen to hip hop, but I am a trained musician who has listened to hundreds of performances, so it’s not my ability to listen; and I have fully enjoyed TV & YouTube excerpts. Among the leads: Hamilton got caught up in sibilants, Jefferson sang too far back in his throat, and King George was overly nasal, all of which buried the words. As far as acting, King George deserves high marks (very entertaining despite being unintelligible) but portraying Jefferson as a narcissistic self-aggrandizer was objectionable (opposite the actual Jefferson). I still recommend seeing Hamilton; Miranda’s brilliant work provides an exciting experience even if you can’t understand the words!

Didn’t like all of the rap thru the play. Performers were great tho.

3.0 star rating Todd and Dani from Atlanta, Georgia


We all know that when we see a show on tour, we aren’t going to see the iconic original cast. For Hamilton, however, the pure saturation of the amazing LMM production via Disney Plus sets unrealistic expectations on even the most aware of veteran show goers. The touring cast in Atlanta was good. Not great. Perhaps the casting is a bit off on some of the Skylar sisters, but they didn’t captivate us the way we had hoped. The sound was off, and it was difficult to hear the actors at times, even from 10 rows back. Costumes, lighting, set, and orchestra were A Plus amazing. No questions on that. But this touring cast seemed to be taking the night off at times, which was disappointing. Ensemble brought the energy and moves - but the featured actors were obviously deflated tonight. We love the Fox Theatre and we know it won’t always be a hit. But this show should have been, and it all starts with casting the right talent. This one just came up short.

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.

2.0 star rating from Des Moines, Iowa


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.

2.0 star rating Cathy from Columbus, Ohio


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.

2.0 star rating Dan Kilgore from San Antonio, Texas


Lots of hype around the show maybe raised expectations too high. The show was good, but not spectacular. Hard to follow the rap pace, plus the phrasing used in rap, so the story gets lost. Choreography is minimal and the majesty of typical musical numbers just isn’t there. Have been a season ticket holder for 10 years and would rank this show in the bottom 25% of shows.

BRILLIANT Engrossing unforgettable

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
