The esteemed New York Daily News had a terrific time attending the Broadway showing and commented, “America's journey to the underworld is a road best avoided – better to step off it, young ones. Don't look back – it's much too hazardous. Instead, hunt for the cracks in that iconic partition we're erecting. That's the central theme of "Hadestown," the thrilling new Broadway show with a score that originates from the very depths of the American core. Blending elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street disarray, this dystopian tuner was conceived as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the impressive singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
