Beginning on August 9, this Tony Award-winning show brings a timeless myth to life with unforgettable music, poetry and characters that audiences will adore. Hadestown intertwines two mythic tales – that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone – and invites you on a thrilling journey to the underworld and back. Any way the wind blows, all roads lead back to Hadestown – so don’t forget to grab your ticket today.

The acclaimed new musical is by celebrated singer-songwriter and Tony Award® winner Anaïs Mitchell and developed with innovative director and Tony Award® winner Rachel Chavkin. Hadestown marks the first time in over a decade that a woman has been the solo author of a musical: writing the music, lyrics, and book and is the fourth time in Broadway history a woman has accomplished this creative feat.

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 delivers a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience.
