Welcome to Hadestown, the Tony-winning Best Musical that has captured Broadway’s heart for over four years. This transporting smash-hit intertwines two tales of romance—that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and Queen Persephone—as it invites you on an unforgettable journey to the underworld. Performed by a vibrant ensemble, Hadestown is a "transcendent love story” (Vogue) that will “sweep you up in its joy” (Time Out).

Reviews

Quotation Mark

Critic's Pick! All your favorite Greeks are heading somewhere in Hadestown, the sumptuous, hypnotic and somewhat hyperactive musical...[Anaïs] Mitchell’s score combines folk, pop and Dixieland with rhythmic work shanties and, for the lovers, ethereal arias. All of it sounds great in swinging arrangements for a terrific seven-piece onstage band...[Rachel] Chavkin has probably come as close as anyone could to selling a cerebral downtown story as state-of-the-art Broadway entertainment. Like the sets and musical arrangements, the costumes (by Michael Krass), the lighting (by Bradley King) and the sound design (by Nevin Steinberg and Jessica Paz) are as good as it gets.

—Jesse Green, The New York Times

Four stars! Anaïs Mitchell’s transporting musical makes a hit from a myth...Here’s my advice: Go to hell. And by hell, of course, I mean Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell’s fizzy, moody, thrilling new Broadway musical...Hadestown, moment after lovely moment, sweeps you up in its atmospherics and in the intensity of its eco-Marxist vision of solidarity and the liberating potential of art...And, most important, it has Mitchell’s score: a joyful combination of folk, pop, Dixieland and blues that will make you want to rehear it as soon as the lights come up. You’ll be singing it again in your head for days.

—Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

Lush, vigorous and formally exciting, not to mention, in certain moments, witchily prescient...as an intricate and gorgeous feat of songwriting, as a vehicle for dynamite performances, as a visionary long-term collaboration and a courageous experiment with form, Hadestown is cause for celebration. [Anaïs] Mitchell’s lyrics are image-rich and clever, her confident tunes exhilarating as they hop genres and tones.

—Sara Holdren, Vulture
