The Hamilton filmed stage production is maintaining all the heart and energy of the musical.
Since debuting Broadway in 2015,Hamilton musical has taken the world by storm.This Broadway production has become probably the greatest musical to debuet in the last decade.
Thanks to Disney+ now the world can experiance the magic of it.
Hamilton tells the story of United States Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, played by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Act I follows Hamilton's days in the American Revolution under George Washington (Christopher Jackson), working alongside his friends Marquis de Lafayette (Daveed Diggs), John Laurens (Anthony Ramos) and Hercules Mulligan (Okieriete Onaodowan). It also introduces Hamilton's relationship with Aaron Burr (Leslie Odom Jr.) as well as Hamilton's meeting of Angelica Schuyler (Renée Elise Goldsberry) and marriage to her sister Eliza (Phillipa Soo). Then Act II details Hamilton's days as the Secretary of the Treasury, his disagreements with Thomas Jefferson (Diggs) and James Madison (Onaodowan), the death of his son Phillip (Ramos) and his own eventual death in a duel with Burr.
Hamilton feels like the Broadway experience fans want, getting to see the full breadth of the big numbers, then pushing in and focusing on the actors when the moment calls for it.
The acting of Hamilton is spectacular,which was expected. In addition to Jonathan Groff's deliciously delightful performance as King George III, Diggs is another standout, particularly in Act II as Jefferson. His energy on stage is contagious, also working well as the more over-the-top half of the comedic duo with Onaodowan's Madison. Soo and Goldsberry are forces to be reckoned with as Eliza and Angelica; though they have relatively smaller roles than many of the men, they shine every moment they're on stage.But, of course, the real stars of Hamilton are Miranda and Odom Jr. They elevate the musical with their individual performances and deliver an experience that's the stuff of legends.
As such, Hamilton is the perfect movie experience for fans of the musical, particularly those who haven't been able to see a live performance.
