This remarkable production known as Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the melancholic conclusions that characterize numerous musicals. The initial song decisively declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Even with its melancholy ending, "Hadestown" draws interest due to its outstanding ensemble and well-defined plot imbued with a compelling lesson. The tale retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The core plot revolves around the odyssey of Orpheus and Eurydice to Hadestown, the realm ruled by Hades, where their intense love story unfolds.
Anaïs Mitchell, the genius behind this astonishing production, is credited with its music, lyrics, and book. Her remarkable abilities 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 added musical pieces and dialogues. The transformed theatrical adaptation of the musical, formed under Chavkin's direction, premiered Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and ran until July 31. The production later toured Edmonton and London before making its grand arrival on Broadway in March 2019.
The New York Daily News had a fantastic time witnessing the Broadway performance and commented, “America's journey to the underworld is a route best avoided – better to dismount it, young ones. Don't look back – it's much too hazardous. Instead, hunt for the cracks in that renowned barrier we're constructing. That's the core of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway musical with a score that resonates from the very depths of the American soul. Combining elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street disarray, this dystopian tuner originated as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the impressive singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
