Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop infused tuner about Alexander Hamilton began at The Public Theater to rave reviews, then transferred to Broadway where it won eleven 2016 Tony Awards including Best Musical. More…
A musical about the scrappy young immigrant who forever changed America: Alexander Hamilton. From bastard orphan to Washington's right-hand man, rebel to war hero, loving husband caught in the country's first sex scandal to Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy, 'Hamilton' is an exploration of a political mastermind. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton, and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr, all attend this revolutionary tale of America’s fiery past told through the sounds of the ever-changing nation we’ve become. Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Don't see it if I can't think of a single reason you wouldn't want to see this show.
See it if You want a different kind of musical. Well staged great singing, directing
Don't see it if Can't give a 100 le mis was the only show I gave that too. I really liked but liked le mis and kiss me Kate better.
See it if What more can you expect? Going in with high expectations was matched by a superlative production. Not a weak link anywhere .Go, Go, Go,
Don't see it if There is no option if you love theater. Maybe the cost?????
See it if you want a smart, original, clever interpretation of a fascinating period in our history (& you want to see what all the hype's about).
Don't see it if you have to spend thousands of dollars for tickets. (It'll be around for a while. It is well-worth face value and worth the wait.)

Don't see it if There's no reason not to see it. Even if you have to Wait For It, it's worth it!
See it if brilliant premise that hip-hop score captures energy/perspective of Revolutionary War era leaders, marvelous choreography, set, performances
Don't see it if female characters largely passive, don't feel emotional connection to A. Hamilton until late in 2nd act
See it if you're familiar with and like the cast album. The show is almost entirely the album. If you don't know the music first, you may get lost.
Don't see it if you're not into hip hop or are turned off by a lack of good parts for women in theatre. Out of only three women, two play clichés.
See it if a brilliant combination of rap + hip hop style in an unforgettable world class musical with superb acting and singing and smart comedy !
Don't see it if The only reason not to see this is if you really absolutely cannot tolerate rap style music ! Oh, and if you can't get a ticket !
See it if All the superlatives apply to this hip-hop/rap historical locomotive that won't be hitting the end of the line. NY is the greatest city ITW.
Don't see it if Cast changes can't sustain inevitable quality degeneration. First act is an assault to the senses, before settling into more standard fare.
See it if you are in the least bit interested in the future of the American Musical Theatre. "Hamilton" shows innovation at its best.
Don't see it if Just see it...you'll love it!!!
See it if I was a fan of Hamilton the man and read the book before the show came out. Show follows the book very well.
Don't see it if If you like traditional show music or traditional casting.
See it if You love brilliant musicals that not only teach us history but uniquely use rap to deliver the words; timeless; appeals to all ages;cast!!!!
Don't see it if Phantom of the Opera is still your favorite musical; Cannot follow rap beats or are hard of hearing; Hate politics
See it if you love musicals which are a bit different; you appreciate rap style music; you are interested in Hamilton; you can sit for 3 hours.
Don't see it if you totally hate rap music; you have no desire to know about Alexander Hamilton; you are not a "follower" of everyone else who gave raves.
See it if Lin-Manuel Miranda compresses Chernow’s 800-page biography of Hamilton into a musical of rap and song. Words come fast and cover many years.
Don't see it if Even if you don’t like rap mixed with various music styles, you should see this unique tradition-breaking musical.
See it if you would like to see the most original and creative show on stage anywhere.
Don't see it if Can't think of any reason not to see the show.
See it if No theater lover should miss this show. It's everything they say it is, and more. Inspiring, singable, accessible, relevant, fascinating.
Don't see it if you're not open to all forms of music. Yes, there are several rap numbers, but L-MM's work is so very musical, there's no hint of dissonance
See it if you want to ascend to the next level of Broadway storytelling, to be immersed in history & entertainment engaging in a whole new way
Don't see it if you're afraid you won't like the rap which seems to me actually more akin to the stylings of Gilbert&Sullivan, or can't sit rapt for 3hrs
