Hadestown is the acclaimed new musical by Mitchell, developed with innovative director and Tony Award winner Rachel Chavkin and is the winner of eight 2019 Tony Awards including Best Musical. The musical was preparing to mark its first anniversary of sold out performances on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street) when, on Thursday, March 12, the COVID-19 crisis forced the shutdown of all Broadway theaters.
The Grammy Award-winning Original Broadway Cast Recording of Hadestown from Sing It Again Records is available on CD, vinyl, and streaming. To date, the album has been streamed over 125M times.
The show will launch a National Tour shortly. In its first year, the tour will visit more than 30 cities coast to coast.
