The talented Anaïs Mitchell wrote the musical score, lyrics, and story for the show Hadestown. It tells a reimagined version of the ancient myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.

Her lover Orpheus, a penniless singer-songwriter, embarks on a journey to save her.
During its first Broadway launch, the show garnered 14 Tony Awards mentions, winning eight prestigious awards.

TimeOut NY encourages its audience to enjoy the incredible performance of Hadestown. They expressed, “Here's my advice: Experience hell. And by hell, of course, I'm referring to Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and passionate new Broadway performance. Essentially, the production gives a new twist to the classic Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice: A lad encounters a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds similar to an old tale, right? But it's the genius of Anaïs Mitchell's modern version of this timeless tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that brought life back to this time-honored narrative.”
