This remarkable production known as Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the heartrending conclusions that characterize numerous musicals. The initial song clearly declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." In spite of its sorrowful finale, "Hadestown" compels attention because of its exceptional performers and well-defined storyline infused with a potent lesson. The narrative retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The core focus revolves around the adventure of Orpheus and Eurydice to Hadestown, the realm ruled by Hades, where their closely connected love story unfolds.
Anaïs Mitchell, the mastermind behind Hadestown, is credited with its music, lyrics, and book. Her exceptional talents come to the forefront in her other well-known projects 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 play in 2012. This enhanced rendition included extra musical numbers and dialogues. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, developed under Chavkin's direction, debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and ran until July 31. The production subsequently toured Edmonton and London before making its grand entry on Broadway in March 2019.
The renowned New York Daily News had a wonderful time attending the Broadway presentation and enthused, “America's journey to the underworld is a path best avoided – better to get off it, my children. Don't peer backward – it's way too dangerous. Instead, seek for the flaws in that iconic partition we're constructing. That's the core of "Hadestown," the thrilling new Broadway musical with a score that originates from the very depths of the American core. Mixing elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street anarchy, this grim tuner originated as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the astounding singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
