I was fortunate enough to attend the special programs about Alexander Hamilton that Eva Dorrepaal and Jimmy Napoli put on in Savannah...."Understanding Alexander Hamilton & Raising a Revolutionary." Ms. Dorrepaal gave a stunning one-woman performance as Hamilton's mother, Rachael Faucett, raising her illegitimate son in the West Indies. I found myself concentrating on her facial expressions---fear, joy, apprehension, weariness. Those expressions underscored her words. She was commanding in her portrayal. Equally commanding is historian Jimmy Napoli. He is not a lecturer, leaning on his lectern, droning on. Given the proper setting, he is full of energy, strutting about, gesturing, drawing the audience into the dynamic and often chaotic life of Alexander Hamilton. These two are worth seeing!

Jimmy’s lectures and Eva’s performance made the perfect combination of content and theater in broadening our understanding of Alexander Hamilton and the world that created him. They were able to fit their package of programs into the space and time available. Because of them we were able to offer programing to our audience at time when there was not much else going on. Our patrons were pleased – vocally so. What made it doubly good was that Eva and Jimmy were easy to work with and approachable for our guests.

"Understanding Alexander Hamilton & Raising a Revolutionary" is an absolute must for anyone who has the opportunity to attend it. Jimmy Napoli's historical lecture and Eva Dorrepaal's one-woman act in the role of Hamilton's mother are each exceptional works of entertainment and educational research, and, together, they compliment each other seamlessly. Jimmy is clearly an expert on the subject of Hamilton, and his witty commentary and attention to historical details make for an intimate and colorful retelling of the life of the revolutionary. Then followed by a thrilling performance by Eva Dorrepaal, who paints every bit of space she uses with the vibrant spirit of Rachael Faucett. And succeeds beautifully in instilling a reverence in the audience for Rachael as both the mother of Hamilton, as well as an independent and courageous woman and revolutionary in her own right.

I highly recommend seeing Eva and Jimmy bring to life Hamilton’s story in a new and exciting perspective told. Having seen them in Savannah, Jimmy’s lectures bring to life the impressive role Hamilton had and still has in the founding of our country. Eva’s performance was unique and enlightening in her role as Hamilton’s mother, Rachel Faucette. Catching a rare glimpse into the upbringing of Hamilton is by far worth the ticket. Both historian Jimmy and actress Eva combine their talents into this outstanding performance and series of plays.

What an amazing performance! Jimmy's lecture is well delivered and reveals a depth of knowledge few others possess. Don't let the word "lecture" scare you, this one is engaging and delivered with humor throughout. More so, it sets the stage for Eva's solo performance where she depicts the difficulties of raising a young Alexander Hamilton in the 18th century Danish West Indies. Having had the privilege of getting to know Eva beforehand we got to literally see her transform in the Lady Faucett and yes! She transforms! Wonderful performance! They are true professionals at their trade. A must see!
