Come, on a frightening excursion to the very pit of the underworld with Walter Kerr Theatre in the city of New York presents, on the Tuesday 13th June 2023, Hadestown! Where the lord of hell, King Hades resides, together with his disturbed wife the Queen of Summer herself, Persephone. Together they control the last living space left in all the cosmos, The Factory.

The most clear difference between live theatre and the cinema is the immediacy. Movies are edited and cut to perfection, whereas at the theatre, the actors are really in the room with you. In a weird way, the possibility that things can go wrong at any second is really quite of exciting, and something you can ONLY get at the theater. Normally, things go right and a successful show seems absolutely breathtaking; pulling it off with no hiccups provides a palpable release of tension for both the actors and the audience, which only adds to the excitement. So why not come to the Walter Kerr Theatre and watch some of their upcoming shows?
