HADESTOWN Show Title with a Singular Outstretched Hand Holding a Red Carnation

HADESTOWN Begins Performances on Broadway

  • Sep 2, 2021

Winner of the 2019 Tony Award for Best Musical and a favorite for groups of all ages, Hadestown begins performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre on Broadway tonight.

Hadestown intertwines two mythic tales—that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone—as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, Hadestown is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.

Welcome to Hadestown, where a song can change your fate. This acclaimed new musical by celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) is a love story for today… and always.

Group tickets to Hadestown begin at $49 are now available through July 3, 2022.
