The talented Anaïs Mitchell wrote the musical score, lyrics, and story for the show Hadestown. It tells a retold version of the time-honored myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Eurydice, a maiden facing starvation, goes to work in a bleak industrial representation of the Greek underworld to escape poverty and the biting cold. Her paramour Orpheus, a poor singer-songwriter, undertakes on a quest to reclaim her.
In its debut Broadway launch, the musical garnered 14 Tony Awards mentions, securing eight coveted accolades.

The New York Times described it as "exquisite" and "mesmerizing," praising its improvement from the New York Theatre Workshop version. David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter termed it "absolutely fabulous," specially commending Gray and Page's exceptional performances.
TimeOut NY encourages its readers to experience the wonderful performance of Hadestown. They shared, “Here's my advice: Attend hell. And by hell, of course, I'm referring to Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and emotional new Broadway musical. In short, the show modernizes the classic Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice: Boy crosses paths with a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds similar to a old story, doesn't it? But it's Anaïs Mitchell's current interpretation of this ageless tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that infuse life back to this classic narrative.”
