On the 23rd of October, I went to see the theatrical marvel, Hamilton, at the Victoria Palace with my family. This Broadway show will leave you spellbound with its unique blend of musical styles, from hip-hop and R&B to jazz and ballads, bringing the history to life on stage. The lyrics are incredibly clever and packed with historical references.  

The musical explores the life and legacy of Alexander Hamilton, from his humble beginnings to his role in shaping America’s future. It's known for its catchy songs, powerful performances, and diverse cast. Hamilton has received critical acclaim and has won numerous awards, including multiple Tony Awards. The musical has had a profound impact on the world of theatre and continues to inspire audiences around the globe. 

Hamilton lasts almost three hours of non-stop signing and goes by in a flash, with the quick, clever raps and explosive choreography. Lin Manuel’s work will leave you laughing, crying and trying to catch your breath as he speeds you through this captivating and energetic story, full of complex characters and tangled relationships. 

The line “I am not throwing away my shot!” is sung by Alexander Hamilton himself and represents his determination and drive to seize every opportunity that comes his way. It’s a powerful reminder to always strive for our goals and not let fear or doubt get in the way. This quote has become and anthem for many people who are determined to make the most of their opportunities. What do you think about it? 

Hamilton is a true masterpiece and is definitely a must-see if you’re into musical theatre!
