Hadestown is no outlier when it comes to the heartrending conclusions that define numerous musicals. The opening song decisively declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Even with its melancholy ending, "Hadestown" draws interest owing to its exceptional performers and sharp plot imbued with a potent meaning. The tale retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology.

Anaïs Mitchell, the creative force behind Hadestown, is credited with its music, lyrics, and book. Her impressive skills come to the forefront in her other well-known projects like Young Man in America and Child Ballads. In collaboration with director Rachel Chavkin, Mitchell embarked on a journey to create a reimagined form of the stage play in 2012. This revised rendition included extra musical numbers and dialogues. The transformed theatrical adaptation of the musical, formed under Chavkin's guidance, debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and ran until July 31. The production later traveled to 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 performance and expressed, “America's journey to the underworld is a road best avoided – better to dismount it, young ones. Don't peer backward – it's far too perilous. Instead, hunt for the flaws in that renowned barrier we're constructing. That's the essence of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway production with a score that resonates from the very depths of the American soul. Mixing elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street chaos, this grim tuner began as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the astounding singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
