Review: ‘Hamilton’ makes San Francisco believe
Updated 9:33 am, Friday, March 24, 2017
It might seem like nothing could be more redundant in a theater review than to heap further praise on “Hamilton.” But the show’s Thursday, March 23 press opening at SHN’s Orpheum Theatre demonstrated that in the Trump era, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical about the nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury has still more to teach us — and more to make us shudder.
Equally important, the show lives up to its hype, with apologies to would-be audiences thwarted by astronomical ticket prices or a thousands-deep queue on SHN’s ticketing site.
It’s not just the richly drawn characters or the irresistibly American story of Alexander Hamilton’s rise from “bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman” to “a hero and a scholar.” Nor is it just the effortless cool of Thomas Kail’s direction; devilishly clever rhymes (“pissed ‘em” and “two-party system”); a score that hops, within moments, from banjo twang to jazzy show tune to rap; or melodies that drive toward fiendish accidentals without compromising their catchiness.
