Would really love feedback :)
While I love the aspect you take with this; commenting on how strange the phenomenon seemed at first, I think you could emphasize it a little more. Maybe you could describe the show without explicitly mentioning what it is, and then bring in the idea of how it seems ridiculous, but is actually genius. This is just a suggestion; you can do whatever feels best to you, but I do think you can strengthen this opening a bit.
This question is hard for me to answer, because I'm already in love with this musical, but I do think it would convince many a person to check it out. Personally, I loved the bits about feminism and BLM, and I honestly think you could bring that out more. I know, aside from the musical, many of the actors have participated in social justice things, often the whole cast together using the Hamilton name(I attended an online town hall thing with ticket prices supporting the Biden campaign, so I'm thinking about things like that). I don't know how much you want to venture into that front, but it's a through.
For sure, I think it's a great mix of fact and opinion that feels like a fact, because it's very authoritative(but also has voice and character, which is fantastic). The main thing I wanted to hear more about was the cinematography. You have written an excellent review of Hamilton the musical, but you haven't added as much context about the movie. You could talk about shots, angles, color, editing, quality, and even the journey to get the movie on Disney plus, because I know it took a long time. I think you could also throw in some more statistics about it's success(the Tonys, perhaps) or add some quotes from professional reviewers, but that's less important.
This is truly such a great review. Your writing is excellent, of course, but you pitch the movie in a compelling and excellent way You provide details and background information for people who have never heard of the show, but you also include jokes that will seasoned fans grinning(I sure was). You appeal to all audiences in this review filled with information and presented with charm and respect. I learned new things from this, and I've been listening to this show for a long time.
Like I said, this is such a great review, and these comments are only here to help you make it better. Feel free to reject any suggestions that don't fit your vision or how you want the piece, it's really all up to you. I mentioned this earlier, but my only big piece of advice is to talk about the actual quality of the movie a little more, otherwise, I think this is fantastic, and super impressive for a first draft. Almost all of my comments are really little things, you nailed this. I hope the review helps, and good luck with the comp!
