Review : Hamilton (musical)

I’ve just seen Hamilton in London (waiting for the train to leave King’s Cross as I type) and I have to add to the brilliant reviews it’s already received.

I enjoyed myself immensely, singing along to at least three songs. The songs are catchy, and the story gripping and moving. The acting, dancing and singing was definitely worth the effort of getting to London in this weather. Unfortunately, I don’t have a brochure so I can’t remember names of actors, but the ones who played Hamilton, Elizabeth, Angelica and George Washington were especially impressive.

The set was impressive, large pieces being moved around the stage for dramatic effect. I thought the costumes lovely. I liked the way they changed as the years passed and fashions changed.

The death of Philip Hamilton was terribly moving, even I cried. King George made everyone laugh with his terrible dancing. Historically inaccurate comic relief is acceptable. But only because I enjoyed the rest of it so much.

So, I definitely recommend it, even if you aren’t normally into musicals.
