"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.
