And by hell, I'm obviously talking about Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and emotional new Broadway musical. Essentially, the production reinterprets the age-old Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice: A lad encounters a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, and they find themselves in the underworld—sounds akin to a old story, right? But it's the genius of Anaïs Mitchell's current version of this enduring tale—and the masterful direction by Rachel Chavkin—that brought life back to this time-honored narrative.”
