TimeOut NY encourages its audience to experience the incredible rendition of Hadestown. They shared, “Here's my advice: Go to hell. And by hell, of course, I'm referring to Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's engaging and passionate new Broadway performance. Essentially, the show modernizes the age-old Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice: A lad encounters a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds akin to an old tale, doesn't it? But it's the genius of Anaïs Mitchell's contemporary take on this timeless tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that breathe life back into this classic narrative.”
