Anaïs Mitchell wrote the musical score, lyrics, and story for the show Hadestown. It narrates a modernized version of the ancient myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Eurydice, a youthful woman facing starvation, ventures to work in a harsh industrial depiction of the Greek underworld to evade poverty and chill temperatures. Her paramour Orpheus, a penniless singer-songwriter, sets off on a quest to reclaim her.
Upon its initial Broadway unveiling, the Broadway production garnered 14 Tony Awards nominations, winning eight coveted accolades.

TimeOut NY encourages its audience to witness the marvelous rendition of Hadestown. They expressed, “Here's my advice: Go to hell. And by hell, I mean Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and passionate new Broadway show. Essentially, the show modernizes the ancient Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice: A young man meets a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, and they find themselves in the underworld—sounds akin to the old tale, doesn't it? But it's the genius of Anaïs Mitchell's modern version of this ageless tale—and the masterful direction by Rachel Chavkin—that breathe life back to this classic narrative.”
