At a recent press preview, the cast of Hadestown on Broadway performed a collection of numbers from their show. Get a taste of what to expect when you go "way down to Hadestown" in this montage from the event.
The new musical, written by Anaïs Mitchell, begins previews March 22 ahead of an April 17 opening. Rachel Chavkin directs.
The principal company is led by Reeve Carney, André De Shields, Amber Gray, Eva Noblezada, and Patrick Page, with a cast that includes Jewelle Blackman, Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer, Kay Trinidad, Afra Hines, Timothy Hughes, John Krause, Kimberly Marable, Ahmad Simmons, Malcolm Armwood, T. Oliver Reid, Jessie Shelton, and Khaila Wilcoxon.
The musical is described as follows: "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. Mitchell's beguiling melodies and Chavkin's poetic imagination pit nature against industry, faith against doubt, and love against fear. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers, and singers, Hadestown delivers a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience."
The Broadway creative team includes Rachel Hauck (set design), Michael Krass (costume design), Bradley King (lighting design), Nevin Steinberg and Jessica Paz (sound design), David Neumann (choreography), Liam Robinson (music direction and vocal arrangements), Michael Chorney, Todd Sickafoose (arrangements and orchestrations), and Ken Cerniglia (dramaturgy).
