Hadestown is no outlier when it comes to the heartrending conclusions that characterize many musicals. The opening song clearly declares it to be a "sad song" and a "sad tale." Even with its melancholy ending, "Hadestown" compels attention owing to its exceptional performers and well-defined plot imbued with a potent lesson. The story retells the myth of Orpheus from Greek mythology. The main plot revolves around the journey of Orpheus and Eurydice to Hadestown, the realm ruled by Hades, where their intense love story unfolds.
Anaïs Mitchell, the creative force behind this astonishing production, is the mind behind its music, lyrics, and book. Her remarkable abilities are evident in her other notable works like Young Man in America and Child Ballads. In collaboration with director Rachel Chavkin, Mitchell embarked on a journey to create a fresh version of the stage play in 2012. This revised rendition included extra musical numbers and dialogues. The transformed theatrical adaptation of the musical, formed under Chavkin's direction, debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and performed until July 31. The production subsequently had performances in Edmonton and London before making its grand entry on Broadway in March 2019.
The renowned New York Daily News had a wonderful time witnessing the Broadway presentation and enthused, “America's journey to the underworld is a path best avoided – better to dismount it, my children. Don't peer backward – it's far too perilous. Instead, search for the cracks in that iconic partition we're constructing. That's the central theme of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway musical with a score that originates from the very depths of the American core. Blending elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street anarchy, this dark tuner began as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the impressive singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
