Hadestown is no exception when it comes to the melancholic conclusions that define many musicals. The initial song emphatically declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Despite its tragic conclusion, "Hadestown" draws interest because of its exceptional performers and sharp plot imbued with a powerful message. The narrative retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The central 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 new iteration of the theatrical piece in 2012. This revised rendition included extra musical numbers and dialogues. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, crafted under Chavkin's supervision, debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and performed until July 31. The production subsequently traveled to Edmonton and London before making its grand debut on Broadway in March 2019.
The esteemed New York Daily News had a wonderful time experiencing the Broadway performance and commented, “America's journey to the underworld is a path best avoided – better to dismount it, young ones. Don't look back – it's way too dangerous. Instead, hunt for the cracks in that iconic partition we're constructing. That's the central theme of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway show with a score that originates from the very depths of the American core. Blending elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street chaos, this dark tuner originated as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the impressive singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
