An indicator of a performance's triumph is its count of Tony Awards, and the remarkable production has several. From 14 nominations it earned for the 2019 Tony Awards, the show clinched eight victories, among them the much-coveted title of Best Musical. Furthermore, the musical garnered accolades for its enchanting musical score by David Mitchell, the masterful direction of Rachel Chavkin, the standout performance by André De Shields, the ingenious scenic design, the impressive sound design, the masterful lighting design, and the artful orchestrations.
In Anais Mitchell's reshaping of a ancient Greek tale, Eurydice is depicted as a young woman skilled in navigating on her own in a world filled with unpredictability, even in weather conditions. Conversely, Orpheus is a ardent singer-songwriter brimming with emotions. Upon their initial encounter, Eurydice is lured into an underworld factory, in which Hades transforms his workers into unthinking drones.
Orpheus embarks on a journey to retrieve her, and aided by his musical tunes and Persephone (Hades' wife), he achieves bringing her back to his residence.
The cast is small, made up of merely 13 members, who stay put on the forefront for the most of the performance. The ensemble consists of five cast members, who provide their singing and dancing in the background to heighten the energy of the songs. Among the performers are the three Fates, combining singing, conversation, and interaction with the characters. The full seven-piece band for "Hadestown" performs the entire production while all with the exception of the drummer are seen on stage. The main characters include the deities Hades and Persephone, as well as Orpheus and his beloved Eurydice.
Entertainment Weekly showered accolades on the Broadway rendition, commenting, “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 delivered in Hadestown. As it debuts on Broadway, this journey to the realm of the dead feels like a newly conceived creation.”
