A way to gauge of a performance's triumph is its collection of Tony Awards, and Hadestown has quite a few. Out of the 14 nominations it got for the 2019 Tony Awards, the show clinched eight victories, including the much-coveted title of Best Musical. Furthermore, the musical garnered accolades for its enchanting music composed by David Mitchell, the masterful direction of Rachel Chavkin, the standout performance by André De Shields, the creative scenic design, the impressive sound design, the artful lighting design, and the creative orchestrations.
In Anais Mitchell's reshaping of a ancient Greek story, Eurydice is presented as a young woman skilled in surviving on her own in a world filled with unpredictability, even in weather conditions. On the other hand, Orpheus is a ardent singer-songwriter filled with feelings. After their first meeting, Eurydice is lured into an underworld factory, where Hades transforms his workers into unthinking drones.
Orpheus embarks on a journey to retrieve her, with the assistance of his harmonious tunes and Persephone (Hades' wife), he succeeds in bringing her back to his abode.
The cast is small, made up of merely 13 members, who stay put on center stage for the bulk of the performance. The chorus consists of 5 cast members, who lend their voices and dance in the background to boost the vigor of the songs. Present in the cast the three Fates, combining singing, conversation, and interaction with the characters. The complete seven-piece band for "Hadestown" delivers the full performance while all excluding the drummer are on display on stage. The central protagonists embody the deities Hades and Persephone, as well as Orpheus and his beloved Eurydice.
Entertainment Weekly showered praises on the Broadway rendition, commenting, “When it comes to tales as ancient as time, the narratives of Greek mythology rank high, those epic stories of gods and mortals that have been recounted for centuries, inspiring endless interpretations. However, there's something remarkably modern and fresh about the way those stories - those ancient ballads, those poignant ballads - are presented in Hadestown. As it premieres on Broadway, this journey to the realm of the dead feels like a newly conceived creation.”
