The talented Anaïs Mitchell wrote the music, lyrics, and book for the production Hadestown. It recounts a retold version of the time-honored myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Eurydice, a young girl in need of sustenance, sets out to work in a harsh industrial portrayal of the Greek underworld to evade poverty and the biting cold. Her beau Orpheus, a penniless singer-songwriter, embarks on a journey to rescue her.
During its first Broadway unveiling, the Broadway production garnered 14 Tony Awards mentions, securing eight prestigious awards. It attained itself the sought-after label of ‘Best Musical,’ much to the enthusiastic fans. The presentation premiered on Broadway on April 17, 2019, garnering accolades. It was acclaimed for its direction and the exceptional performance of André De Shields. The New York Times termed it as "exquisite" and "mesmerizing," commending its improvement from the New York Theatre Workshop version. David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter termed it "absolutely fabulous," with a special mention of Gray and Page's excellent performances.
TimeOut NY urges its readers to witness the wonderful rendition of Hadestown. They shared, “Here's my advice: Go to hell. And by hell, I mean Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's engaging and evocative new Broadway show. Essentially, the show reinterprets the ancient Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice: A young man meets a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds like the old story, right? But it's the genius of Anaïs Mitchell's current take on this timeless tale—and the masterful direction by Rachel Chavkin—that breathe life back to this classic narrative.”
