The talented Anaïs Mitchell wrote the composition, verses, and narrative for the production Hadestown. It tells a modernized version of the time-honored myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Eurydice, a youthful woman struggling with hunger, sets out to work in a grim industrial representation of the Greek underworld to escape poverty and the biting cold. Her lover Orpheus, a poor singer-songwriter, embarks on a quest to save her.
During its first Broadway launch, the show garnered 14 Tony Awards nominations, achieving eight prestigious awards. It achieved itself the desired label of ‘Best Musical,’ bringing immense joy to the enthusiastic fans. The spectacle premiered on Broadway on April 17, 2019, gaining commendation. It was acclaimed for its direction and the remarkable acting by André De Shields. The New York Times termed it as "exquisite" and "mesmerizing," praising its improvement from the New York Theatre Workshop version. David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter termed it "absolutely fabulous," highlighting in particular Gray and Page's excellent performances.
TimeOut NY urges its audience to experience the incredible interpretation of Hadestown. They stated, “Here's my advice: Attend hell. And by hell, of course, I'm referring to Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and emotional new Broadway performance. In essence, the show gives a new twist to the classic Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice: Boy crosses paths with a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds akin to a old tale, right? But it's Mitchell's current take on this timeless tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that infuse life back to this traditional narrative.”
