Ok, I want to know everything you thought when watching the musical. The songs, the characters, the acting. And omg, you look cute in the pictures with Jordan and Rory 💕

Thank you! The only thing that really messed up my night a tiny tiny bit was that I am near sighted so while I could still see tiny details and so forth, all the cast members faces were blurry, especially when it was dark, it was like a partial double and ahhh I had to squint on the see and sit on the edge of my seat–I was crying so it made it worse haha. 

So about the cast: Ryan Alvarado (Hamilton) had spirit and he is a GREAT actor, but his voice doesn’t… sound like a Hamilton? If you know what I mean. 

At first, I didn’t really like Julia K. Harriman’s performance too much but then we got to “That Would be Enough” and she had… the voice of a god damn angel and I completely fell in love. 

DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON RYAN VASQUEZ. Oh my god, you know when you are speechless about something but you have so much to say? That is me. Ryan is NOTHING like Leslie Odom Jr.’s performance and oh my god, Ryan swept the whole show OFF OF OUR FEET. He was the light of my entire evening! He was incredible, absolutely my favorite. Leslie’s voice is soft like a angel and like he acts Burr kinda softly but Ryan?? He’s got this studious kinda serious lift to his voice but when he sings it was INCREDIBLE. Definently the best part of the entire show, he got a lot of laughs too because of how serious his voice was and tired it sounded when talking to Hamilton. Incredible performance. He just seemed like the real life Burr to me. 

Okay, everyone’s been saying they love Emmy Ravier Lampman? and I did, but like… not as much as I thought I would. She was a great Angelica and she had such a mannerism of Angelica. 

Isaiah Johnson was incredible as George Washington and that is ALL you need to know. 

Jordan Donica… you will not believe it. Jordan got the most laughs on the entire show you will not believe it we all could not stop laughing it was incredible. Okay, him as Lafayette was absolutely AMAZING! He aced Guns and Ships and his jump was fantastic!! His French accent was impeccable and his facial expressions were AMAZING, his gestures… ahhhhh his everything! I met him at the stage door and I was so surprised with how modest he was about his performance because he was incredible and he deserves to know that. But now, onto Thomas Jefferson–you will not believe it. All he did was walk on stage–but the way he did it? Everyone started laughing IMMEDIATELY. He was so good, and he was so, so, so funny. He was amazing! He stole the show whenever he was on stage because he caught everyone’s eye. Incredible, amazing, a billion times better than I ever thought. 

Mathenee Treco was a FANTASTIC Hercules Mulligan and James Madison. Just his acting was amazing! and his voice totally envelops the entire room. 

Ruben J. Carbajal was so lovable?? Oh my god?? He was amazing?? The way he played John Laurens, all like war like and then displayed Philip Hamilton and just so childish you could almost believe it was a small child (hella tall one though) playing him. 

My brother adored Amber Iman and that’s all you gotta know. 

Rory O’Malley was incredible. He was amazing. He was fantastic. I was laughing my ass off every time he did even a slight movement and I know mainly everyone was laughing at his facial features and I am really sad I couldn’t see them but just he was so good and hilarious–it was my uncle’s favorite part (besides the orchestra). 

Daniel Ching as Charles Lee had us all rioting, he was so good. 

The opening number “Alexander Hamilton” was really, really great. Ryan Vasquez made it ten times better. The way the spotlight switched from person to person when they are going we fought for him, we died for him… had my mouth hanging open. Ryan did a really good job with acting Alexander Hamilton. 

Aaron Burr Sir was so good I cannot take this. Aaron Burr was carrying a book when Hamilton comes up to him and just the way Ryan Vasquez did this like… studios thing was incredible. When Hamilton says that Lafayette’s pants look hot, Hercules Mulligan put his leg up on the table AND SLAPPED IT I WAS SCREAMING. When Lafayette stumbled over “anarchy” the entire theater was in a riot. 

For both “The Story of Tonight” and the reprise Ruben’s voice was like an angel oh my god. In the reprise, Jordan started bouncing on his thighs and winking and all the adults in the room were loosing it because of how many weird sex moves he was doing. 

The Schuyler Sisters was a good song but like,,, Emmy, Julia and Amber didn’t match up for some reason? Like they were a little out of sync on some parts. But believe me when I say that when Burr walked on and started following around Angelica everyone thought it was the funniest thing ever–he delivered his lines as if he actually was Burr and I am so happy he was on. 

Farmers Refuted was hilarious. Like Hamilton keeps stepping in front of the box and to try and get the attention away, Seabury keeps stepping in front of him and acting all pissed off and annoyed. Then Hamilton steps on the box with him and starts waving his hand in front of the paper. When Hercules Mulligan said “oh my god tear this dude apart” I bursted out laughing it was that good–I wasn’t alone. 

Right Hand Man was so, so good. Isaiah did a great job and I loved it! And like always, Ryan Vasquez made us all laugh when he got kicked out. 

Julia did a great job at acting kinda childish for Eliza in Helpless which I highly enjoyed especially because Angelica is acting super mature. 

Woah, Satisfied swept me off my feet. That was absolutely beautiful and amazing, Emmy stumbled over a bit of her lines when the quick part started but other than that, incredible and breath taking. 

One of my favorites of the night was Wait for it. I had been waiting and waiting months to hear this song live and it still brings chills and tears to my eyes when I think of Ryan Vasquez’s awing performance. He went flat on the high note when all the ensemble jumps in and starts singing,, but other than that.. I would pay to see just that song again. 

The first song of the night where I just melted into my seat was History has its Eyes on you. Isiah had the voice of a god damn angel and it was so beautiful and incredible. 

I ALREADY TALKED ABOUT IT BEFORE BUT JORDAN DID MORE THAN JUST AN AMAZING JOB AT LAFAYETTE I WAS AWE STRUCK. 

Definitely one of my favorite songs of the evening if not my favorite to watch was The World Turned Upside Down. Absolutely incredible, I am awe struck. Fantastic, amazing, I have chills just talking about it. 

Alright, hands down my favorite song to listen to that evening was Dear Theodosia. It was so, so beautiful. I melted into my chair at Burr’s voice it was so beautiful, so so so beautiful. I really have no other words to describe how utterly beautiful it was.

The John Laurens song had me sobbing, that is all you need to know. 

NON STOP WAS INCREDIBLE I HAVE NO WORDS PLEASE, PLEASE SPARE ME I WOULD DO ANYTHING TO SEE IT AGAIN. Hamilton and George Washington got laughs?? It was funny, it was amazing and ahhfdahfdhfffdf

Already, all Jordan did in What’d I Miss is WALK ON THE STAGE and everyone lost their shit. He was amazing and so lovable and you already heard all the rest. He kept looking at his own reflection in the top of his cane and acting like an arrogant asshole–it was so good, I was crying in laughter. 

Cabinet Battle #1 was even better than I thought it was going to be. Jordan made it incredible and Ryan (Hamilton) did really good on this one too!!! Cabinet Battle #2 was AMAZING and when Jefferson says “did you forget Lafayette?”, Jordan said that in a FRENCH ACCENT. I was like woah… did he just.. I see you boyyy. 

My aunt’s favorite was Take a Break–it wasn’t hard to see why. Ruben did such a cute Philip and it was adorable. Emmy and Julia’s voices?? Amazing!! It fit in so well together!!

Amber’s voice was even deeper than Hamilton’s in Say No to This and my brother loved her voice as I said before. Just so deep and melodic. 

Alright, here we go… hands down… The Room Where it Happens was my absolute favorite to watch live. You think the music is powerful? You have NO IDEA when you see this song live. Ryan Vasquez did so well?? He went from level 0 to 100 in just five seconds and he is incredible!!

WASHINGTON ON YOUR SIDE WAS SO FUNNY SO MY GODD,,, Jordan pranced around the stage and it was so god damn funny!!!

One Last Time brought my tears… so many tears.. Isaiah had the voice of an angel and he hit all the high notes where they were supposed to be. Incredible. 

THE ADAMS ADMINISTRATION WAS AMAZING. So in the song, Alexander Hamilton is standing on the back balcony and he scribbles off a large stack of papers before just DROPPING them onto the stage when he is about to call Adams a mother fucker. 

Ryan Alvarado did amazing in We Know. 

Okay, I was waiting and waiting and waiting for Hurricane. Hurricane is my most favorite song in all the album and I was waiting forever to see this. It was even more incredible than I though it would be you have no idea. In the eye of the hurricane? Everything paused, everyone is holding furniture and it moves so slowly and beautifully. Tears in my eyes, incredible. 

THE REYNOLDS PAMPHLET WAS HILARIOUS. OH MY GOD, I mean you know historically it is sad, BUT JORDAN AND RORY WERE SO FUNNY. All these papers were flying all over the place?? You have no idea unless you see it but everyone was having a riot over Thomas Jefferson bouncing on the table. 

Burn was amazing. Burn was probably my aunt’s favorite. I didn’t expect much live but oh man was I wrong. I was sobbing for Eliza and Julia’s voice was so beautiful. 

Again Ruben, incredible performance in Blow us all Away. The guy who played George Eacker stumbled on his lines a little bit. 

It’s Quiet Uptown was so… sad. I was sobbing my eyes out and I just cannot believe this?? It was so pretty and so sad and I just?? I cannot believe it. It was amazing, it was so beautiful. 

The Election of 1800 was hilarious again, everyone had a riot over Jordan and Mathenee. Super, super good and of course Ryan again performed amazing as Burr. He was so believable. I loved it. One of my favorite songs to watch no doubt. 

Your Obedient Servant was incredible. I loved it?? Hamilton and Burr did such an amazing god holy shit. It was funny but also so sad to watch because we all know what happens next. 

I was sobbing through Best of Wives, Best of Women–that is all you need to know. 

The World was Wide Enough took my breath away. Burr and Hamilton delivered such a beautiful performance. The only thing was that Ryan Alvarado’s voice didn’t seem… serious enough? Like… you know… you’re about to get shot and you’re contemplating you legacy, it just kind of ruined the mood just a slight bit. My favorite line of the musical is in there so I still loved it anyways. Ryan Vasquez delivered such a good job… his Burr was so believable and everyone I talked to adored him and what he did. 

There was not a person who was not crying at Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story. It was such an amazing way to close, Julia’s voice was incredible and amazing–the voice of an angel. She stole the entire show with everything that she did. Her little gasp at the end? It was so god damn beautiful, I was actually with no words and I have chills–it was amazing. It was one of the best things I watched in the show. When Jordan said “and I tried” he sounded so sarcastic and he got laughs during such a serious song. 

There you go, best night of my life alright.

the tour was amazing!! some thoughts: 

  • i saw ryan alvarado as hamilton and julia k harriman as angelica. both were amazing, especially since i’m pretty sure it was julia’s second show ever and she got thrown in last night with no warning?? she was a little quiet sometimes but she was really good during satisfied
  • the whole cast was really good but the standouts were solea pfeiffer and josh henry. both incredible.
  • everyone came out the stage door and i feel blessed. i had to wait like another 20 minutes for solea and rory but it was worth it
  • stephanie styles came out the stage door and i was #shocked but i guess she had the day off rehearsals? but she’s really Here
  • i recorded audio, i need a little time to start tracking it but if you want to hear specific songs just let me know and i’ll post them as soon as i can! i’ll also trade for the whole thing if you’re into that
