TimeOut NY encourages its followers to enjoy the marvelous interpretation of Hadestown. They expressed, “Here's my advice: Attend hell. And by hell, of course, I'm referring to Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's engaging and emotional new Broadway performance. In essence, the show reinterprets the age-old Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice: A young man meets a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, and they find themselves in the underworld—sounds similar to an old story, right? But it's Anaïs Mitchell's contemporary interpretation of this ageless tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that infuse life back into this traditional narrative.”
