An indicator of a performance's triumph is its haul of Tony Awards, and the remarkable production has several. From the 14 nominations it earned for the 2019 Tony Awards, the show clinched eight victories, including the much-coveted title of Best Musical. Moreover, the musical garnered accolades for its mesmerizing music composed by David Mitchell, the masterful direction of Rachel Chavkin, the standout performance by André De Shields, the creative scenic design, the impressive sound design, the expert lighting design, and the skillful orchestrations.
In Anais Mitchell's reinterpretation of a ancient Greek legend, Eurydice is depicted as a young woman well-versed in navigating on her own in a world characterized by unpredictability, even in meteorological patterns. On the other hand, Orpheus is a passionate singer-songwriter brimming with emotions. Upon 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, assisted by his harmonious tunes and Persephone (Hades' wife), he achieves bringing her back to his abode.
The cast is efficient, comprising only 13 members, who remain on center stage for the bulk of the performance. The chorus consists of five cast members, who contribute their vocals and dance in the background to heighten the vitality of the songs. Among the performers are the three Fates, engaging in song, dialogue, and interaction with the characters. The entire seven-piece band for "Hadestown" plays the entire show while all excluding the drummer are on display on stage. The primary figures embody the deities Hades and Persephone, as well as Orpheus and his beloved Eurydice.
Entertainment Weekly showered praises on the Broadway rendition, stating, “When it comes to tales as ancient as time, the narratives of Greek mythology rank at the top, those epic stories of gods and mortals that have been recounted for thousands of years, inspiring countless adaptations. However, there's something remarkably contemporary and fresh about the manner in which those stories - those timeless melodies, those poignant ballads - are unveiled in Hadestown. As it premieres on Broadway, this trip to the realm of the dead feels as if it were a novel creation.”
