The musical Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the tragic conclusions that mark a lot of musicals. The opening song clearly declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Despite its sorrowful finale, "Hadestown" compels attention owing to its outstanding ensemble and well-crafted plot containing a compelling message. The story retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The main plot revolves around the odyssey of Orpheus and Eurydice to Hadestown, the realm ruled by Hades, where their intense love story unfolds.
Anaïs Mitchell, the creative force behind this astonishing production, is credited with its music, lyrics, and book. Her impressive skills shine through in her other notable works like Young Man in America and Child Ballads. In collaboration with director Rachel Chavkin, Mitchell embarked on a journey to create a reimagined form of the theatrical piece in 2012. This updated rendition included extra musical numbers and dialogues. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, formed under Chavkin's direction, debuted 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 renowned New York Daily News had a terrific time attending the Broadway presentation and commented, “America's journey to the underworld is a route best avoided – better to step off it, dear ones. Don't look back – it's much too hazardous. Instead, seek for the flaws in that renowned barrier we're erecting. That's the essence of "Hadestown," the thrilling new Broadway production with a score that originates from the very depths of the American spirit. Blending elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street chaos, this grim tuner began as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the incredible singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
