One measure of a performance's triumph is its collection of Tony Awards, and this outstanding show has quite a few. Out of the 14 nominations it got for the 2019 Tony Awards, the show clinched eight victories, among them the much-coveted title of Best Musical. Furthermore, the play was honored with accolades for its enchanting musical score by David Mitchell, the insightful direction of Rachel Chavkin, the standout performance by André De Shields, the ingenious scenic design, the noteworthy sound design, the artful lighting design, and the creative orchestrations.
In Anais Mitchell's reimagining of a ancient Greek legend, Eurydice is presented as a young woman skilled in navigating on her own in a world characterized by unpredictability, even in climate. Meanwhile, Orpheus is a ardent singer-songwriter filled with feelings. 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, with the assistance of his harmonious tunes and Persephone (Hades' wife), he succeeds in bringing her back to his residence.
The cast is small, comprising only 13 members, who stay put on the stage for the majority of the performance. The ensemble consists of five cast members, who contribute their vocals and dance in the background to boost the energy of the songs. Among the performers are the three Fates, engaging in song, dialogue, and interaction with the characters. The complete seven-piece band for "Hadestown" performs the entire production while all except the drummer are visible on stage. The main characters encompass the deities Hades and Persephone, as well as Orpheus and his beloved Eurydice.
Entertainment Weekly showered accolades on the Broadway rendition, stating, “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 thousands of years, inspiring endless interpretations. However, there's something remarkably modern and fresh about the way those stories - those ancient ballads, those poignant ballads - are presented in Hadestown. As it debuts on Broadway, this trip to the underworld feels as though it's a completely new invention.”
