Hamilton at Bristol Hippodrome – Review

Hamilton is on at Bristol Hippodrome until 22 June! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

📍 Bristol Hippodrome, St Augustine’s Parade, Bristol, BS1 4UZ

Hamilton (West End tour) is an outstanding production which tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. It is written by the incredible Lin-Manuel Miranda – if you have watched Moana and Encanto with your kids, you will be familiar with some of his songs! Going in I did not know much of the story, but I enjoyed it instantly. R&B is quite prevalent in the soundtrack, it is very catchy and since watching the show I haven’t been able to stop listening! Hamilton was an extraordinary person and it is an interesting story and history – also emotional in parts. The whole production is superb and actors were all standing ovation worthy! We saw the Alt Hamilton (Jonathan Hermosa-Lopez) who is Hamilton on a Monday (Lafayette/Jefferson other days). He was brilliant! King George had the best expressions and was very funny. I highly recommend a watch while it is in Bristol – you have until 22 June to see it! Book tickets

The age recommendation is 10+.The story is quite complex so it might go over the head of younger audiences, but the songs are great even if you don’t follow the storyline in full. It would be a great one with friends or for date night!

🥂Order drinks to your seat for before the performance and at the interval (There are QR codes on the back of seats, or order at the bar or go on the ATG website in advance)

⭐️ It isn’t essential but if you are not familiar with the history, I would have a quick look up Alexander Hamilton and The Founding Fathers online, so you are more familiar with who’s who and the series of events! There are a couple of actors that play two characters. I would recommend listening to the soundtrack ahead if you can to increase the emotional impact. I recommend Helpless, Satisfied, Alexander Hamilton, The Schuyler Sisters and Non-Stop as parts of some of these songs repeat in later songs too! 🎵 You can also watch the Broadway version with Lin-Manuel Miranda on Disney+!

If you don’t manage to see it in Bristol, you can see it at Birmingham Hippdrome 25 June – 31 August, or Cardiff Wales Millenium Centre 26 November 2024 – 25 January 2025
