Splurged for great seats - know the music by heart but hadn’t seen the show yet. It’s great. The Chicago cast is excellent. I hope it stays for another year so I can come back. So much easier to get to Chicago from Denver vs NYC! The theater experience is fun and authentic. Wouldn’t have expected anything less. But, be ready for long bathroom lines so plan your fluid intake accordingly!

I bought tickets for my boyfriend’s 30th in the orchestra seats, row L, dead centre. They weren’t cheap and to fulfil the price tag it had to be something spectacular and boy was it!! Burr was fantastic, Washington so commanding and King George stole the show! We could list all the things we loved about each performer but that wouldn’t be the most exciting read. The performance and stage direction for ‘Hurricane’ and ‘Satisfied’ in particular was beautifully put together. We would both watch it again and again if we could! Completely lived up to the hype for us!

Absolutely incredible show in every way. Beautiful old theater. Don’t need to use the bathroom though. The line was at least 150 people deep for a 15 min intermission. Other than that, amazing in every way. Miguel Cervantes as Hamilton is brilliant!

Best history lesson on my last night out in Chicago during the biggest HR conference in the world... the view from seats in the Dress Circle were priceless!

Was able to get tickets at the last minute with wifey which was crazy. The value and edutainment was really extraordinary. I would defiantly see again and it made me aware of things that aren’t written in the history books...omissions to the foundational character of early U.S. leaders.
