This remarkable production known as Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the tragic conclusions that characterize a lot of musicals. The initial song clearly declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Despite its sorrowful finale, "Hadestown" compels attention owing to its exceptional performers and well-crafted storyline infused with a compelling meaning. The story retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The core plot revolves around the journey of Orpheus and Eurydice to Hadestown, the realm ruled by Hades, where their intense love story unfolds.
Anaïs Mitchell, the mastermind behind this astonishing production, is credited with its music, lyrics, and book. Her remarkable abilities shine through 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 new iteration of the stage production in 2012. This updated rendition included extra musical numbers and dialogues. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, crafted under Chavkin's supervision, premiered Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and performed until July 31. The production subsequently traveled to Edmonton and London before making its grand debut on Broadway in March 2019.
The 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 get off it, my children. Don't peer backward – it's much too hazardous. Instead, search for the cracks in that renowned barrier we're constructing. That's the central theme of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway musical with a score that originates from the very depths of the American core. Blending elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street disarray, this grim tuner began as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the astounding singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
