Great music, Masterful, Riveting, Must see, Great staging

See it if You want a visual and aural masterpiece. Orchestrations, choreography, the music! Ross Golan, Thomas Kail, and Alex Lacamoire are genius!

Don't see it if The story was relatively predictable and could use work. But that's expected with a show built on a concept album. This show was phenomenal!

"'Hamilton's' Thomas Kail directs it with intense panache; Alex Lacamoire's arrangements bring out the score's pop polish; the lighting and sound are impeccable. But while the music is fresh, the musical is cramped."
