This remarkable production known as Hadestown is no exclusion when it comes to the heartrending conclusions that define a lot of musicals.

Anaïs Mitchell, the creative force behind this astonishing production, is credited with its music, lyrics, and book. Her remarkable abilities come to the forefront in her other notable works 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 theatrical piece in 2012. This revised rendition included additional songs and dialogue. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, crafted under Chavkin's guidance, debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and performed until July 31. The production later toured Edmonton and London before making its grand entry on Broadway in March 2019.
The New York Daily News had a wonderful time experiencing the Broadway presentation and expressed, “America's journey to the underworld is a road best avoided – better to step off it, my children. Don't peer backward – it's much too hazardous. Instead, search for the fissures in that famous wall we're constructing. That's the central theme of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway show with a score that resonates from the very depths of the American spirit. Mixing elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street anarchy, this grim tuner was conceived as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the astounding singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
