TimeOut NY encourages its readers to experience the incredible performance of Hadestown. They expressed, “Here's my advice: Go to hell. And by hell, of course, I'm referring to Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and emotional new Broadway performance. In essence, the show reinterprets the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice: A lad encounters a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, and they find themselves in the underworld—sounds akin to an old story, doesn't it? But it's Mitchell's contemporary take on this ageless tale—and Chavkin's—that brought life back to this time-honored narrative.”
