I had anticipated seeing this show for a long time.
Having seen dozens of show on Broadway and traveling casts in other locations, I had Hamilton on my must see list.
We were underwhelmed. To us it was more like an opera in that most if not all the dialogue is sung in rap form. It is not a condemnation of rap as art form. If you like theatre for costumes and production numbers this will disappoint you too.
It was 2 hours 55 minutes with 15 minute intermission.
What did you think?

Fortunately, I won the lottery for $10 tix to see Hamilton. I appreciate the uniqueness of making a musical based on Hamilton's life BUT it is a "rap opera" and rap is not my thing. Give me Lerner & Lowe, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber with melodies that are hummable. Very happy I did not pay full price to see this production.
AND it was too long!

I, too, have seen many musicals (Broadway,London, Vegas and L.A.) and would see Hamilton if it was somewhere somewhat convenient and if it didn't cost hundreds of dollars per ticket. I think it will eventually show up in an abbreviated form in Vegas; if so, I'll go see it.

I absolutely loved Hamilton. I found it innovative and inspiring. I get that it’s not the traditional musical but there will never be another Lerner and Lowe, or Oscar Hammerstein. Theater and music must continually evolve to be relevant in the culture. Thankfully we will always have the classics of the past.
