HAMILTON

I didn’t know it was a rap. If your young and enjoy rap I’m sure it was great but I did not enjoy it. I could not understand most of the characters, Thomas Jefferson was the worst I never understood a word he said. The heavy sit guy was hit and miss as was the others. Plus our forefathers were not black, and definitely did not know what rap was. So sorry I wasted my money on this show.

DISAPPOINTMENT

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.

HAMILTON

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

VOICE CLARITY WAS POOR FRIDAY 12/10/2021

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.

POOR SOUND QUALITY

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.

DON'T BUY THE HYPE

The first act is almost exclusively rap. Be prepared to miss a significant portion of the story line and character development. The second does have some conventional music. The story is great. The staging and choreography are good. Hamilton did not live up to my expectations.

2 YR WAIT NOT WORTH IT

This was a long wait for a show my wife and I looked forward to seeing being history fans. This was so bad my wife was ready to leave at intermission. The only highlight for us was King George. I dozed off multiple times. The rap was aweful at times making it hard to understand what it was they were saying. Thomas Jefferson was portrayed like a pimp.

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
