This new Broadway musical by celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin is a love story for today…and always. Winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. More…
"Hadestown" intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back with a story that pits industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love.
See it if (S)Hadestown is so aware of its artistic vision and execution. The story is old and music is bland, meanwhile the acting is quite good.
