I cannot say how often I turn on this soundtrack, because I truly don’t know. There is so much raw talent throughout the production of this show, and I love every single second of it. There are some standout roles throughout this film that I feel an innate desire to talk about tonight.
George Washington (portrayed by the incredible Christopher Jackson) is an absolute blast. We get to see and hear each and every emotion of Washington’s through the pure talent of Jackson each and every time.
Daveed Diggs plays two different roles in this show, however I feel as though his portrayal of Thomas Jefferson is truly something of Broadway wonder. I can’t think of anyone better suited to that role than Daveed.
And finally, Jonathan Groff. The man who plays a hilarious interpretation of King George III. Absolutely hilarious each and every time he is on screen, with superb talent, and a love to make fun of himself off stage (especially about the spit take and the memes surrounding it).
Handsdown my favorite musical ever! I have no words to describe how mind-blowingly this is done. The King character is my favorite! 😂
As a thespian, musician, and a Hamilfan, I indisputably treasure the fact that a professional HD recording of the Pulitzer Prize-winning smash hit Hamilton has been made available for viewing internationally.
The score, book, and lyrics, which were all written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, are truly the best to have ever debuted on Broadway, and the choreography, costumes, set design, orchestrations, and every aspect of the creative side are just perfectly flawless as well.
Miranda leads a star-studded cast featuring the likes of Philippa Soo, Leslie Odom Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry, Daveed Diggs, Christopher Jackson, Jonathan Groff, Anthony Ramos, Okieriete Onaodowan, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Ariana DeBose, Ephraim Sykes, and many more.
Hamilton is not only a must-watch for theatre kids around the world, but it’s a film that everyone must view once in their lives, as it tells the story of one of America’s founding fathers and his peers in an entirely revolutionary way.
As someone who has listen to Spotify albums and the remixed version, I have to say I was highly disappointed by watching this film. Not only are the tickets for Broadway overly priced but the main reason I subscribed to Disney+. Hamilton is good for listen but borning to watch.

If you are like me and never had a chance to watch the original on Broadway - this is the next best thing. Very well made, great watch and listen. Watch it for Jonathan Groff spitting.
You know a movie like this is great when you start singing along with the musical performances after a first watch!

The absolut best movie-musical I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot.
Lin-Manuel Miranda is a brillian writer and composer, and it shows.
This is a must watch for everyone.
I haven’t watched the streaming version, saw it in West End live. Amazing historical musical and really well structured.

Det fungerer overraskende godt at se en film, der egentlig "bare" er en videooptagelse af en musical. Det er dejligt forfriskende, at castet er valgt ud fra, hvem der er gode performere, og ikke hvem der har den autentiske etniske fremtoning. Der er også moderne islæt i form af rap, hiphop og jazz, så vi må sige, at denne historie fra 1700-tallet, bobler af kreativitet. Vi anbefaler at tage en god pause, når der er "intermission", så du lige giver hovedet et pusterum, for 2,5 time er lang tid med sang og dans på samme scene.

The real life of one of America's foremost founding fathers and first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. Captured live on Broadway from the Richard Rodgers Theater with the original Broadway cast.

So good! Very difficult to follow sometimes due to lots of financial/political talk which can be hard to keep up with at the best of times, but combining that with rapping makes it even worse! BUT the music is amazing and I cried several times so just try and concentrate and understand what's happening and you'll see an incredibly written show.

Look around, look around at how beautifully Hamilton shines beyond Broadway - and at how marvelously Thomas Kail captures the stage show's infectious energy.
I was lucky to see this live on stage, but not with the original cast and from seats that were quite far away. So this was a treasure. Being able to see the characters facial expressions up close changed the experience completely (turn on the subtitles!!). I’ve listened to the album 1000 times, but the songs took on new meaning with the on-stage details. This is a not-to-be missed experience of one of the cultural touchstones of our time.
