TimeOut NY invites its audience to experience the incredible rendition of Hadestown. They shared, “Here's my advice: Go to hell. And by hell, I'm obviously talking about Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and evocative new Broadway performance. Essentially, the production modernizes the age-old Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice: Boy crosses paths with a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, and they find themselves in the underworld—sounds akin to an old tale, right? But it's Mitchell's current version of this ageless tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that breathe life back to this time-honored narrative.”
