Anaïs Mitchell, the creative force behind this astonishing production, is responsible for its music, lyrics, and book.

In collaboration with director Rachel Chavkin, Mitchell embarked on a journey to create a new iteration of the stage production in 2012. This revised rendition included extra musical numbers and dialogues. The altered theatrical adaptation of the musical, formed under Chavkin's direction, debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop on May 6 and ran until July 31. The production later had performances in Edmonton and London before making its grand debut on Broadway in March 2019.

The esteemed New York Daily News had a fantastic time attending the Broadway presentation and expressed, “America's journey to the underworld is a road best avoided – better to dismount it, my children. Don't look back – it's much too hazardous. Instead, search for the cracks in that renowned barrier we're erecting. That's the essence of "Hadestown," the thrilling new Broadway show with a score that resonates from the very depths of the American spirit. Mixing elements of steampunk, "Westworld," and Bourbon Street disarray, this grim tuner began as a concept album in 2010 – a kind of folk opera – created by the astounding singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.”
