Richard's presentation is engaging, even to somewhat with much less familiarity with the musical than most of the other attendees, and whose review, from a substantive standpoint, would undoubtedly be more informative.
I thoroughly enjoyed this lecture. Richard opens the talk fittingly with what is truly a celebration of the musical, Lin Manuel, the clever lyrics, the great cast. Then in the 2nd half he gently transitions into historical analysis and constructive criticism. It was a wonderful presentation, the slides were very well crafted and the discussion with the group was civil and provocative. I really enjoyed this. I wished I had listened to the sound track (again) in the days leading up to the lecture, that would have been even better for me, but either way it is an excellent experience. Not quite live theater, but pretty close for quarantine!
Educational and fun presentation and wonderful host!
A remarkably informative and entertaining review of the musical Hamilton .Having seen the play and read the book ,I was pleased to see how well Dr Bell addressed its historical accuracy and where the play took historical license.His excellent audiovisuals and engaging demeanor made for a superb lecture
Richard was a very engaging speaker and his presentation was lively and information along with great visuals
