Following two intertwining love stories — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — the 8-time Tony Award®-winning musical Hadestown invites audiences on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers, and singers, Hadestown delivers a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience.
The acclaimed musical by celebrated singer-songwriter and Tony Award winner Anais Mitchell and developed with innovative director and Tony Award winner Rachel Chavkin is the most honored show of the 2018-2019 season. In addition to the show’s eight Tony Awards, Hadestown has been honored with four Drama Desk Awards, six Outer Critics Circle Awards including Outstanding New Broadway Musical and the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Musical. The original cast album also won a Grammy Award® for Best Musical Theater Album at the Recording Academy’s 2020 Grammy Awards.
