Anaïs Mitchell wrote the music, lyrics, and book for the show Hadestown. It tells a retold version of the time-honored myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Eurydice, a young girl facing starvation, sets out to work in a bleak industrial portrayal of the Greek underworld to escape poverty and chill temperatures. Her beau Orpheus, a poor singer-songwriter, embarks on a journey to reclaim her.
In its debut Broadway launch, the musical garnered 14 Tony Awards nominations, achieving eight coveted accolades. It earned itself the sought-after designation of ‘Best Musical,’ bringing immense joy to the ardent fans. The presentation premiered on Broadway on April 17, 2019, receiving commendation.

TimeOut NY encourages its followers to enjoy the wonderful rendition of Hadestown. They expressed, “Here's my advice: Go to hell. And by hell, I'm obviously talking about Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and passionate new Broadway show. In essence, the show modernizes the age-old Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice: A lad encounters a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds akin to the old story, doesn't it? But it's Anaïs Mitchell's current take on this timeless tale—and the masterful direction by Rachel Chavkin—that breathe life back to this classic narrative.”
