Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the heartrending conclusions that mark a lot of musicals. The opening song emphatically declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Despite its tragic conclusion, "Hadestown" compels attention due to its outstanding ensemble and well-defined plot infused with a powerful meaning. The tale retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology.

Anaïs Mitchell, the creative force behind Hadestown, is the mind behind 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 stage production in 2012. This revised rendition included additional songs and dialogue. The transformed theatrical adaptation of the musical, crafted under Chavkin's direction, debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and performed until July 31. The production afterward toured Edmonton and London before making its grand entry on Broadway in March 2019.
The esteemed New York Daily News had a terrific time attending the Broadway performance and enthused, “America's journey to the underworld is a road best avoided – better to dismount it, my children. Don't look back – it's much too hazardous. Instead, search for the cracks in that famous wall we're building. That's the central theme of "Hadestown," the thrilling new Broadway show with a score that resonates from the very depths of the American core. Mixing elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street chaos, this grim tuner was conceived as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the astounding singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
