This remarkable production known as Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the heartrending conclusions that mark a lot of musicals. The opening song emphatically declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Despite its tragic conclusion, "Hadestown" compels attention owing to its exceptional performers and sharp storyline infused with a powerful lesson. The story retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The main focus revolves around the journey of Orpheus and Eurydice to Hadestown, the realm ruled by Hades, where their deeply intertwined love story unfolds.
Anaïs Mitchell, the mastermind behind Hadestown, is the mind behind its music, lyrics, and book. Her remarkable abilities are evident 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 new iteration of the stage play in 2012. This revised rendition included added musical pieces and dialogues. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, crafted under Chavkin's direction, debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and performed until July 31. The production subsequently had performances in Edmonton and London before making its grand entry on Broadway in March 2019.
The renowned New York Daily News had a terrific time experiencing the Broadway presentation and enthused, “America's journey to the underworld is a route best avoided – better to dismount it, my children. Don't peer backward – it's far too perilous. Instead, search for the flaws in that famous wall we're erecting. That's the central theme of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway musical with a score that originates from the very depths of the American soul. Mixing elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street anarchy, this dark tuner originated as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the astounding singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
