Has anyone seen Hamilton?

Personally, I love it. What are your thoughts? I think that Lin wrote great songs, and threw in some clever lyrics that only some people catch. Great play/movie.

Saw the one on TV about a month ago. Very good

Yes, my 11 year old daughter is obsessed with it.

I thought it was good, impressive that he was able to write a 3 hour rap musical about Alexander Hamilton, but i think some of the rapping is lazy writing and should have casted more rappers and less actors. Daveed Diggs by far best rapper on the stage, Renée Elise Goldsberry was great too, and i loved all the parts with Jonathan Groff.

Yeah, that was noticeable that Diggs was the best. He is the best actor of them all in my opinion. Yes...even better than Lin Manuel Miranda

Yes. Daveed was very good, like Renée. I thought that Groff's part were very funny. Leslie Odom Jr. was very intense. GREAT VOICE. I also loved Christpoher Jackson's voice.

That is understandable. I would give it a try. It isn't all rap.

That’s a byproduct of combining rap and opera though; in both products there is always a compromise when it comes to lyrical succinctness.
