The musical Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the heartrending conclusions that define many musicals. The initial song emphatically declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Despite its sorrowful finale, "Hadestown" captures attention because of its brilliant cast and sharp plot imbued with a powerful lesson. The narrative retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The central plot revolves around the odyssey of Orpheus and Eurydice to Hadestown, the realm ruled by Hades, where their intense love story unfolds.
Anaïs Mitchell, the genius behind Hadestown, is credited with its music, lyrics, and book. Her remarkable abilities shine through 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 reimagined form of the stage production in 2012. This enhanced rendition included added musical pieces and dialogues. The transformed theatrical adaptation of the musical, formed under Chavkin's supervision, premiered Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and ran until July 31. The production afterward traveled to Edmonton and London before making its grand entry on Broadway in March 2019.
The New York Daily News had a fantastic time witnessing the Broadway showing and expressed, “America's journey to the underworld is a path best avoided – better to dismount it, my children. Don't peer backward – it's much too hazardous. Instead, seek for the flaws in that iconic partition we're erecting. That's the core of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway musical with a score that originates from the very depths of the American core. Combining elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street anarchy, this dark tuner began as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the incredible singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
