Hamilton

I have learnt so much from this musical and it made me want to learn more

Hamilton

Hamilton is about a man called Alexander Hamilton and is set between 1776 and 1804 which is the year of Alexander’s death. Alexander Hamilton is one of the founding fathers of the United States.

The musical is approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes long not including the interval and is split into 2 halves. The first half is about the American war of independence and the second half is about the creating of the American nation which shows new characters and goes “behind the scenes” into the politics.

The cast were a mix of black and white males amd females but I wish they had females playing male roles because black people played people who, in real life, were white to shine light on racism AND sexism as there are only really 3 roles for women (not including the ensemble) and they are still not as good as the majority of male roles.

There is also some comedy thrown in (especially about King George iii) but all round (in my opinion) it is just amazing. I would definitely recommend it if you are thinking of going and even if you aren’t especially if you live history!

The costume and set design is also very good. Later on in the okay they make some characters age by changing their hairstyles and ,for Alexander Hamilton, the addition of glasses.

Overall I rate it 10 out of 10
