here’s my review of hamilton!! sorry it’s so long lmao

  • okay first off everything was amazing
  • there were no understudies on which was cool bc i wanted to see it with the whole obc
  • burr’s first entrance was so gr8, everyone started cheering and you could tell how excited people were for the show
  • the same thing happened at lin’s entrance with what happened at the grammy’s, he had to wait like 5 seconds before continuing
  • aaron burr, sir was very good
  • hamilton is so cute in it he is totally looking up to burr and he looks so young and eager
  • laurens and mulligan and lafayette were so funny together, and the way they tease burr makes you feel bad for him
  • when hamilton says his first line to him they look so impressed it’s gr8
  • my shot was really cool, they had part of the stage moving in a circle and you can see them handing out pamphlets to people like eliza and angelica
  • the dancing in my shot was so on point
  • the story of tonight was super sappy and gay, lams is totally canon y’all
  • the schuyler sisters was so funny and sassy, and peggy was so cute in it getting dragged by her sisters
  • farmer refuted was so funny!! hamilton kept trying to block seabury when he was giving his speech like standing in front of his box, i’m surprised no one on tumblr has talked about that yet
  • you’ll be back was so gr8, i love jon groff sm
  • washington’s reveal in right hand man was so dramatic, and that song had great dancing! and hamilton was so eager and pumped
  • the end pose at the end of right hand man was really cool; washington had his sword out and it made me feel really pumped
  • a winter’s ball was really funny, burr, hamilton and laurens all did a funny pose on the first LADIES where they all put their hands up it was gr8
  • the heys were all done together and were funny to watch
  • helpless was amazing as usual, and when eliza’s dad gives his consent hamilton starts to do a little dance, then the dad turns around and he stops and gets all embarrassed
  • satisfied was super cool bc the rewind stuff meant that they literally repeated all the same actions, but angelica was narrating and you could see all the inner meaning behind it all
  • story of tonight (reprise) was funny, but you could see burr in the background getting all left out which was kinda sad
  • also when lafayette says , “you are the worst burr” it was really deadpan and people laughed really hard
  • wait for it was phenomenal i felt such a connection to burr in that moment
  • charles lee was really funny in stay alive, his “wheee!” was so excited
  • ten duel commandments was cool and also full of foreshadowing to the world was wide enough
  • during meet me inside, hamilton stands on his tiptoes when he yells don’t call me son bc there’s such a height difference
  • that would be enough what really touching, pippa soo has such a great voice
  • GUNS AND SHIPS was so good, lafayette jumps like 10 ft in the air it’s a fun time
  • the battle of yorktown was also really good, the reveal of hercules mulligan got me so pumped
  • during what comes next, in the line i’m so blue king george stomps his foot and the light above him turns blue it’s gr8
  • dear theodosia is such a lovely song, and burr and hamilton were totally being parallels as they sing the song together
  • okay but when john laurens dies it’s the saddest thing ever. It starts with eliza telling ham he has a letter, and she reads the letter outloud, and hamilton just says, “i have so much to do” but you can see how broken up he is
  • i may have cried a little oops
  • non-stop was so passionate, and you can see hamilton turning so sassy, the ending got me so hype
  • what i’d miss was so funny, when jefferson first comes out he makes people applaud for him he’s so comedic
  • when washington goes to shake jefferson’s hand hamilton cuts in front of him and you can see jefferson going…. who is this
  • cabinet battle #1 was amazing, jefferson was so sassy and he did a fake mic drop where madison catches it
  • hamilton loses his chill
  • take a break was so sweet, and eliza beatboxing behind phillip was the cutest thing ever
  • say no to this was all sinister, and at the end you can see maria looking back at hamilton like she misses him
  • the room where it happens was full of passion, and you can totally see a change in character in burr
  • in schuyler defeated you can feel the anger in hamilton and it’s such a shift
  • cabinet battle #2 was gr8, hamilton does the funniest little dances to mock jefferson
  • the beginning of washington on your side was funny bc burr starts singing and jefferson just looks over and is like, who are you and why do i agree with you
  • southern motherfucking democratic republicans was so passionate i was hype
  • one last time was so nice, all i want is washington to get his own vine and fig tree i almost cried again
  • i know him was funny bc king george was so hyped up, and when burr started singing the adams administration he started dancing along it was great
  • the gasp at the end of sit down john was so good
  • hurricane was really good bc hamilton was in the center and the ensemble was frozen in poses of destruction and confusion, so it was like he was literally in the eye of the hurricane
  • the reynolds pamphlet was both funny and sad, bc jefferson is dancing around being all silly but phillip is shown the pamphlet and he looks so sad
  • burn was amazing phillipa soo was amazing 
  • blow us all away was cool, and when phillip died you could hear like the whole theatre go like this :0 and gasp in shock
  • eliza’s scream at the end of stay alive (reprise) was heartbreaking and i almost started crying at that
  • it’s quiet uptown was so sad, you could hear in hamilton’s voice how miserable he was
  • at the end he and eliza hold hands and it’s a really touching moment
  • burr during the election of 1800 was kinda sad, bc he was so excited in the beginning of it but when he learns that hamilton is voting for jefferson his face just falls
  • your obedient servant was full of malice and anger you could feel it
  • best of wives and women broke my heart, espeically when ham says you’ll be back before you know i’m gone, bc you know he’s not
  • i started crying like halfway through world was wide enough, the acting was so great and there was so passion and regreat in burr’s voice
  • i was crying all the way through who lives, who dies, who tells your story, and it’s so nice that eliza gets to end the musical
  • at the very end eliza gasps and it’s supposed to be her seeing hamilton when she goes to heaven and it killed me
  • all in all, hamilton is the best musical i have ever seen, and probably the best musical ever created
