Hadestown Announces Broadway Cast Album Release Date
Anaïs Mitchell's new mythological musical is open at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
Producers Mara Isaacs, Dale Franzen, Hunter Arnold, and Tom Kirdahy announced today that Hadestown, the new musical written by singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and directed by Tony nominee Rachel Chavkin, will digitally release the show's original Broadway cast recording on June 7. The recording will be also available as a double-CD with a release date to be announced.
The album will be produced by David Lai and Todd Sicakfoose, who previously produced the 2017 live recording from the show's earlier run at New York Theatre Workshop.
Following two intertwining love stories — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — Hadestown invites audiences on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back.
The Broadway cast is led by Reeve Carney, André De Shields, Amber Gray, Eva Noblezada, and Patrick Page. They are joined by Jewelle Blackman, Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer, and Kay Trinidad as the Fates. The Workers Chorus is played by Afra Hines, Timothy Hughes, John Krause, Kimberly Marable, and Ahmad Simmons. Swings include Malcolm Armwood, T. Oliver Reid, Jessie Shelton, and Khaila Wilcoxon.
Hadestown opened at the Walter Kerr Theatre on April 17.
