This remarkable production known as Hadestown is no outlier when it comes to the tragic conclusions that characterize many musicals. The initial song emphatically declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Despite its tragic conclusion, "Hadestown" compels attention due to its brilliant cast and sharp plot containing a compelling lesson. The narrative retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The core plot revolves around the adventure of Orpheus and Eurydice to Hadestown, the realm ruled by Hades, where their deeply intertwined love story unfolds.
Anaïs Mitchell, the genius behind this astonishing production, is the mind behind its music, lyrics, and book. Her remarkable abilities come to the forefront in her other well-known projects like Young Man in America and Child Ballads. In collaboration with director Rachel Chavkin, Mitchell embarked on a journey to create a new iteration of the stage production in 2012. This revised rendition included extra musical numbers and dialogues. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, formed under Chavkin's guidance, premiered Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and performed until July 31. The production afterward toured Edmonton and London before making its grand arrival on Broadway in March 2019.
The New York Daily News had a fantastic time witnessing the Broadway showing and commented, “America's journey to the underworld is a route best avoided – better to step off it, my children. Don't look back – it's much too hazardous. Instead, hunt for the cracks in that famous wall we're building. That's the central theme of "Hadestown," the exciting new Broadway show with a score that emanates from the very depths of the American soul. Blending elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street anarchy, this dystopian tuner originated as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the impressive singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
