The Guardian commented on the show's unique setting and shared only positive views. The writer expressed, “Its energetic opening scenes recollect us of that grand American concept of equal rights and address slavery and civil rights in the 18th century. “I didn't expect making it past 20. In the place where I originated, some get half as many,” sings Hamilton at the commencement, and his words resonate the perilous destiny that is in store for countless of America’s black or immigrant underprivileged class now, as debates around Black Lives Matter demonstrations have actually highlighted.”
