An indicator of a performance's triumph is its collection of Tony Awards, and this outstanding show has several. Out of 14 nominations it got for the 2019 Tony Awards, the show clinched eight victories, including the much-coveted title of Best Musical. Moreover, the play was honored with accolades for its mesmerizing musical score by David Mitchell, the skillful direction of Rachel Chavkin, the standout performance by André De Shields, the creative scenic design, the noteworthy sound design, the artful lighting design, and the artful orchestrations.
In Anais Mitchell's reinterpretation of a Hellenic legend, Eurydice is depicted as a young woman skilled in navigating on her own in a world filled with unpredictability, even in meteorological patterns. Conversely, Orpheus is a passionate singer-songwriter brimming with emotions. After their first meeting, Eurydice is lured into an underworld factory, where Hades transforms his workers into automated drones.
Orpheus embarks on a journey to retrieve her, with the assistance of his harmonious tunes and Persephone (Hades' wife), he manages to bringing her back to his residence.
The cast is efficient, comprising only 13 members, who stay put on the forefront for the most of the performance. The chorus consists of five cast members, who provide their singing and dancing in the background to enhance the vigor of the songs. Among the performers are the three Fates, who sing, converse, and interact with the characters. The entire seven-piece band for "Hadestown" plays the entire show while all with the exception of the drummer are on display on stage. The central protagonists encompass the deities Hades and Persephone, as well as Orpheus and his beloved Eurydice.
Entertainment Weekly showered accolades on the Broadway rendition, stating, “When it comes to tales as ancient as time, the narratives of Greek mythology rank among the best, those epic stories of gods and mortals that have been recounted for millennia, inspiring endless interpretations. However, there's something remarkably current and fresh about the method those stories - those timeless melodies, those poignant ballads - are presented in Hadestown. As it premieres on Broadway, this trip to the underworld feels as if it were a novel creation.”
