HAMILTON IS THE MUST SEE EVENT OF THIS YEAR IN SN FRANCISCO

I went to the first two previews on friday and saturday march 10 and march 11. The show itself exceeds all the substantial hype and praise and is truly one of the very best of the 200+ musicals Ive seen on broadway and tour-its fast moving, musically brilliant, deeply emotional and will take you on a journey of one of the most incredible rivalry's in history between Burr and Hamilton. Often tour casts are not quite at the level of broadway casts-not the case here AT ALL. Joshua Henry as Burr and Michael Luwoye as Hamilton could do these roles on broadway today and probably will in the future. The cast also includes the fantastically funny tony nominated Rory OMalley as King George...hilarious. Yes the tickets are pricey, and yes its well worth it, Hamilton is an entertaining tour de force that will be regarded as a milestone in musical theatre achievement and impact-go see it before it leaves town!

CONTENT AND DIVERSITY

One of the best productions I have seen in my 75 years. What distinguishes it from the rest is the diversity of the cast. We have finally seen that the race and nationality of the cast rarely has to reflect the reality of the historical facts. A production dealing with such a complicated historical period is never easy. "Hamilton" succeeded beyond expectations. As a lifelong Philadelphian I recommend spending several days here to see and feel one of the historic settings

AMAZING PERFORMANCES

Played with the full heart and soul of the entire cast this is a show that should not be missed, performed by a remarkably talented group of artists. Bravo to all of you. This was the best birthday gift ever from my beautiful daughter! Thanks to all for a memory that will last for the next 69 years.

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

I've been listening to the soundtrack of Hamilton since it was made available. I loved the musical initially from it's brilliant lyrics and style. I could not have imagined how impactful the performance would be live. The actors and choreography make you want this theater experience to never end. There are several actors who performed their roles on Broadway including Emmy Raver-Lampman ( heart breaking Angelia), Isaiah Johnson (commanding George Washington), Michael Luwoye (perfect Hamilton), Joshua Henry (shining complex Burr) and hilarious Rory O'Malley as King George. Go for the same day tickets or do whatever you can to see this show.

DESERVES EVERY AWARD POSSIBLE !!

With all broadway shows they go above and beyond, although with Hamilton, it makes all the other shows look like low-budget high school productions. The amount of energy, and ferocity was insane, and I simply could not wait to see it a second time. Or third. Or fourth. Really, I will never get tired of this performance. "Jazzy J's" whistle register simply knocked me out of my seat but not only that, it was also how she could control the audience's emotion with a single tear, or perfect placed crack in the voice while singing "Say No To This." I could talk about every single actor and actress in the production, but MY GOD the ensemble I think blew us all away(no pun intended) … I will say again, the energy was phenomenal, and I really could not think of a better place I would want to be in the World. Amazing Job.

INSPIRATIONAL

This is the second musical I've seen in my life, and I have my friend, who got me the ticket, to thank for that. Seeing this musical was like one of those moments that just stick with you for the rest of your life. The music was well orchestrated and the choreography was amazing, along with the lighting, humor, and costume. It was definitely a life changing moment. And the seats were amazing too! My friend had given me seat in row S, which is the Orchestra area. While it was pricey, I was able to get a good view of the people performing. Of course, due to the profanity of this show I wouldn't recommend children unless you're one of those parents who are really chill about it, but I would take someone who is okay with that kind of language. That day I didn't have time to eat somewhere nearby because I was coming from school, but I remember when I was watching something else around the area, I ate at Alexander's Steak House (Ha, get it? Alexander Hamilton?) and it was really good.

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 lyri
