“Heavenly. Haunting. Exquisite.” – WNYC
“Hadestown takes the best of the genre and fires it into something utterly fresh and undeniably, stirringly now.” – Deadline
Welcome to Hadestown, a tale that weaves together two love stories – the dreams of Orpheus and Eurydice and the complex relationship of King Hades and Persephone. This Broadway sensation takes audiences on a thrilling ride to the underworld and back, exploring the clash between industry and nature, doubt and faith, and fear and love. Anais Mitchell’s captivating melodies and Rachel Chavkin’s poetic vision has brought this narrative to life.
Produced by Mara Isaacs, Dale Franzen, Hunter Arnold, and Tom Kirdahy, Hadestown earned acclaim as the most-honored show of the 2018-2019 Broadway season. It won a staggering eight Tony Awards, including Best New Musical, and the 2020 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. The accolades ensued 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.
This musical is the brainchild of celebrated singer-songwriter and Tony Award winner Anaïs Mitchell, crafted in collaboration with innovative director and Tony Award winner Rachel Chavkin. Not to mention, Hadestown marks a historic achievement, being the first time in over a decade that a woman has been the sole author of a musical – writing the music, lyrics, and book. It’s a groundbreaking feat, only the fourth time in Broadway history that a woman has accomplished this creative trifecta.

“A Broadway musical like no other. an epic celebration of music, togetherness and hope.” – Forbes
“A stunningly visceral, exquisitely original production. The theatre gods should be smiling.” – NY1
The musical is completely sung-through, with very little dialogue. From the very start of the production, audiences are graced with an unforgettable number of ‘Road To Hell’ by Hades. There are a lot of other unforgettable songs that’ll have you singing long after the musical is over too, including ‘Way Down Hadestown’ and ‘Wait for Me’. TimeOut London said, “The wonderfully diverse songs of Mitchell’s expanded, virtually sung-through soundtrack are the bedrock. From the demonic trombone riff that powers opener ‘Road to Hell’, through Hades’s stentorian authoritarian anthem ‘Why We Build the Wall’, to the graceful encore some two-and-a-half hours later, it is a musically thrilling, lyrically eccentric articulation of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth that has gratifyingly little to do with musical theatre convention.”
“Your next musical theater obsession” – Evening Standard
“The music is terrific – endlessly inventive and eclectic.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“Good luck trying to get these melodies out of your head.” – The Star-Ledger

It’s a haunting yet hopeful tale that will leave you wanting more. So, when the touring company arrives in Greensboro, North Carolina, be sure not to miss it.
