And by hell, I'm obviously talking about Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and emotional new Broadway show. In essence, the show gives a new twist to the ancient Greek legend 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 akin to the old story, doesn't it?
