“And the new Toronto cast provides a chance for some Canadian performers you may know from ‘supporting’ or ‘featured’ roles to take the lead in this kinetic ensemble production directed by Christopher Ashley.”

Toronto Star – Carly Maga

“This new cast reveals humour as one of the driving forces behind the musical’s identity and message — it builds bonds, it invites, and it makes unimaginable circumstances bearable to start, and eventually joyous.

NOW Magazine – Susan G. Cole

“Christopher Ashley, who won a Tony award for direction, keeps everyone moving non-stop, ingeniously recreating the vibe on a plane, on a careening bus or in a packed bar. If anything, it all moves at almost too much of a breakneck speed.”

The Slotkin Letter – Lynn Slotkin

“It’s a wonderful story told in this glorious musical and yes, in these troubled times, this show is needed. See it and take Kleenex.”

Stage Door Christopher Hoile

“The result is a musical where the acting and singing of the cast and the folk music–inspired playing of the nine onstage musicians combine in the united goal of telling a story in the most effective way possible.”

“[…] Hamilton never loses narrative momentum because of [creator Lin-Manuel] Miranda’s masterful merging of hip-hop ideas with the musical theatre form.”

Toronto Star – Carly Maga

“Nevertheless, the tour of “Hamilton” shines light on its impressive features that a cast recording can’t convey — Andy Blankenbuehler’s jaw-dropping choreography, low and smooth and hard all at the same time, and one gorgeous revolve in David Korins’s set design.”

NOW Magazine – Glenn Sumi

“The touring cast is full of big talent. [Jared] Dixon’s Burr is the strongest performer, appropriately slick and smooth-voiced in public, tender and philosophical in his musical soliloquies.”

Mooney on Theatre – Ilana Lucas

“Jared Dixon blazes forth, particularly in the Act I showstopper, “Wait For It.” Like a reverse Iago on Hamilton’s shoulder that tells him to avoid action, he’s simultaneously uptight and a little wicked and charming.”

The Slotkin Letter – Lynn Slotkin

“Neil Haskell gives a cheeky performance as the arrogant King George.”
