Our review of Hamilton

Hamilton - history has its eyes on you!

Nicola QuinnNicola Quinn, September 17th, 2015

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 wrote the book, music and lyrics for Hamilton, inspired by his love for 90's rap and hip hop, and the classic musical scores of Broadway's best. It's here, in this mash, that we experience music which moves by lyrics, beats and creates undeniable beauty!

From start to finish the cast is on point, using every corner of the stage, and their passion for the material absolutely shines through. The choreography and its superb execution flawlessly guides you between the world of modern music (which should feel displaced from the context of this story) and the musical's narrative.

This is theatre at its best, and I personally loved that there was no use of digital projection despite the modern spin. Hamilton has the ability to send you back in time to the tradition of camp fire stories being told with song and dance. While it may be a creation of this era, Miranda's work is making history.
