This remarkable production known as Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the heartrending conclusions that define a lot of musicals. The opening song clearly declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Despite its melancholy ending, "Hadestown" draws interest due to its exceptional performers and well-crafted plot infused with a potent lesson. The story retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The main plot revolves around the odyssey of Orpheus and Eurydice to Hadestown, the realm ruled by Hades, where their deeply intertwined love story unfolds.
Anaïs Mitchell, the mastermind behind this astonishing production, is the mind behind its music, lyrics, and book. Her exceptional talents come to the forefront in her other well-known projects like Young Man in America and Child Ballads. In collaboration with director Rachel Chavkin, Mitchell embarked on a journey to create a reimagined form of the stage production in 2012. This updated rendition included extra musical numbers and dialogues. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, crafted under Chavkin's direction, premiered Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and ran until July 31. The production later traveled to Edmonton and London before making its grand entry on Broadway in March 2019.
The renowned New York Daily News had a wonderful time attending the Broadway showing and commented, “America's journey to the underworld is a path best avoided – better to step off it, my children. Don't glance back – it's much too hazardous. Instead, seek for the flaws in that renowned barrier we're building. That's the core of "Hadestown," the thrilling new Broadway production with a score that emanates from the very depths of the American spirit. Combining elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street disarray, this dark tuner was conceived as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the impressive singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
