The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.

This play was fantastic. We had heard about it for a few years and really wanted to experience it for ourselves. It lived up to everything we heard. The cast was fantastic. The stage was great. The audience was very lively. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.

This show was worth the hype! We bought our tickets fairly last minute, but was able to get pretty decent seats and not break the bank. The only complaint was that the seats in this theater are on the narrow side, and I'm an average-sized female and still found my seat slightly "tight." Go, if you haven't already!

What a great show! Great theatre! It is worth every penny and will leave you speechless. Park in the Hamilton garage and you will pay 1/2 price to park.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience watching Hamilton. We laughed, we cried, we were captivated by the production. We paid close to $1000 for 3 seats with a “limited view” (mezzanine row D seats 13, 15, 17). There were very few scenes with characters performing from the portion of the stage right we were blocked from seeing. It was not really an inconvenience. I felt bad for the people in the box seats who had to stand the whole time to look over at the performance. The staff were wonderful and friendly. We arrived about an hour before show time and there was already a queue forming. We were able to get in, purchase souvenirs and use the restroom without rushing to be seated. Would highly recommend and early arrival.

I love this show. It has such a great energy. The resident cast was perfect. The staging was top notch.

The theatre is not particularly large, but the autistics still work well in the limited space.

The building is beautiful and staff very helpful. The show was the best. Even though you knew the history, you were still on the edge of your seat. Best Musical ever.

I dont listen to hip hop or rap and I thought that I might be spending a lot of money for something that I could not understand. I found that the plot and lyrics were easy to understand and the presentation was very interesting (a historical event told from the perspective of current street talking folk). Worth the money

I liked very little of Hamilton! I liked King George and the music he sang. Other than that I did not like it. I couldn't understand the words. I took a bus trip with tickets included and the price was not expensive at all. But I had to sit in the nosebleeds and I don't like high places. But I would not have liked the musical either way. Save your money it's not worth it. It wasn't that good. I don't like rap music anyway.

We visited Chicago for a full week. Our group included everything from an elderly widow to a 7 year old kid. Our entire group all agreed that Hamilton was our very favorite thing that we did while we were in Chicago. Even upon returning home, we can't stop listening to the sound track and singing the songs. The cast was exceptional. It truly exceeded our highest expectations. I wish we could see the show all over again!

Hamilton deserves all of the accolades it has received and more.

This musical surpasses all expectations. The performances were all terrific. The set design and costumes are ambitious.

The overall theme of time and time’s relevance throughout the story is incorporated with a turntable stage that simulates the movement of an analog clock.

This musical is infused with kinetic energy. The run time says the play takes two hours and forty-five minutes with a fifteen minute intermission, however the flies so fast you will swear it took longer to read this review than watch the performance.
