  • A LIGHTNING BOLT OF FRESHNESS AND EXCITEMENT.” The Daily Beast
  • “A VISCERAL THRILL.” Financial Times

HADESTOWN follows two intertwining love stories – that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of king Hades and his wife Persephone – as it invites audiences on an epic journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s alluring melodies and poetic imagination pit nature against industry, faith against doubt, and love against fear. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and musicians, HADESTOWN delivers a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience.
