This remarkable production known as Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the tragic conclusions that mark a lot of musicals.

Anaïs Mitchell, the creative force behind Hadestown, is credited with its music, lyrics, and book. Her remarkable abilities come to the forefront in her other prominent creations like Young Man in America and Child Ballads. In collaboration with director Rachel Chavkin, Mitchell embarked on a journey to create a fresh version of the stage play in 2012. This revised rendition included additional songs and dialogue. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, formed under Chavkin's guidance, debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and ran until July 31. The production afterward had performances in Edmonton and London before making its grand debut on Broadway in March 2019.
The esteemed New York Daily News had a terrific time experiencing the Broadway performance and enthused, “America's journey to the underworld is a path best avoided – better to dismount it, young ones. Don't look back – it's way too dangerous. Instead, hunt for the fissures in that famous wall we're erecting. That's the core of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway musical with a score that resonates from the very depths of the American core. Mixing elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street disarray, this dark tuner began as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the incredible singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
