In Anais Mitchell's reshaping of a ancient Greek story, Eurydice is depicted as a young woman well-versed in coping on her own in a world where unpredictability, even in weather conditions. On the other hand, Orpheus is a passionate singer-songwriter overflowing with sentiments. After their first meeting, Eurydice is lured into an underworld factory, in which Hades transforms his workers into unthinking drones.
Orpheus embarks on a journey to retrieve her, and aided by his harmonious tunes and Persephone (Hades' wife), he succeeds in bringing her back to his dwelling.
The cast is small, made up of merely 13 members, who remain on the stage for the majority of the performance. The ensemble consists of five cast members, who provide their singing and dancing in the background to boost the energy of the songs. Among the performers are the three Fates, combining singing, conversation, and interaction with the characters. The entire seven-piece band for "Hadestown" delivers the full performance while all with the exception of the drummer are on display on stage. The primary figures encompass the deities Hades and Persephone, as well as Orpheus and his beloved Eurydice.
Entertainment Weekly showered accolades on the Broadway rendition, remarked, “When it comes to tales as ancient as time, the narratives of Greek mythology rank high, those epic stories of gods and mortals that have been recounted for centuries, inspiring numerous versions. However, there's something remarkably modern and fresh about the way those stories - those timeless melodies, those poignant ballads - are unveiled in Hadestown. As it debuts on Broadway, this journey to the underworld feels like a newly conceived creation.”
