TimeOut NY urges its audience to witness the marvelous performance of Hadestown. They expressed, “Here's my advice: Experience hell. And by hell, I mean Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's captivating and passionate new Broadway show. In short, the musical reinterprets the ancient Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice: A young man meets a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds similar to a old story, doesn't it? But it's Mitchell's modern take on this enduring tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that brought life back into this traditional narrative.”
