TimeOut NY encourages its audience to witness the incredible performance of Hadestown. They shared, “Here's my advice: Attend hell. And by hell, I'm obviously talking about Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's engaging and emotional new Broadway performance. Essentially, the production gives a new twist to the age-old Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice: Boy crosses paths with a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds like a old story, right? But it's Anaïs Mitchell's contemporary take on this enduring tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that breathe life back into this traditional narrative.”
