A musical masterpiece
5 July 2020 | by sini-200See all my reviews

One of the greatest historical musicals ever made, the story, the outfits, the set, the score, the casting - everything absolutely perfect! Songs are incredible. Lin Manuel Miranda is remarkable in this, a living legend. You won't forget a musical like this.
