Hawaii Mom Blog: Hamilton - Now Showing at Blaisdell Concert Hall

Hamilton - Now Showing at Blaisdell Concert Hall

I was very fortunate to have been invited to the Media Night showing of Hamilton, courtesy Broadway in Hawaii.

The Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical debuted last night at Blaisdell Concert Hall, sharing the story of Alexander Hamilton.  

I was very familiar with the worldwide acclaim that the musical has received, but I was unfamiliar with most of the story of Alexander Hamilton.  This musical was a fantastic way to learn about such a prominent individual, along with other important political and military figures of the time.

The performances in Hamilton were unlike any other I've experienced.  The integration of rap, hip hop, and R&B created an engaging (although sometimes difficult to understand since they sometimes rapped so fast!) platform to deliver the background of one of the most significant figures in America's history.  

In addition to the unique musical styles, the incorporation of cast members of diverse backgrounds, in my opinion, enhanced the story line, allowing audience members to look beyond the surface and into each individual's being.

There were so many noteworthy performances, with the cast members belting out their hearts and captivating the audience, but my favorite was Helpless.  The rhythm, lyrics, and the story had me entranced.  

I laughed, I cried, and I learned a lot of history.  I found the story of Hamilton intriguing, and the story of his wife, Elizabeth, inspiring.  

I saw many young kids at the show, and I would totally bring my own kids to experience this amazing musical (there are some curse words sprinkled throughout the show).
