The New York Daily News had a fantastic time witnessing the Broadway showing and commented, “America's journey to the underworld is a road best avoided – better to dismount it, young ones. Don't glance back – it's way too dangerous. Instead, seek for the cracks in that renowned barrier we're constructing. That's the essence of "Hadestown," the riveting new Broadway show with a score that originates from the very depths of the American core. Blending elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street chaos, this dystopian tuner originated as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the incredible singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
