"[Brian] d'Arcy James and the other new cast members bring the same level of emotional intensity to their roles as their predecessors, so those encountering [Jez] Butterworth's monumental drama for the first time can rest assured that they won't be experiencing it in an inferior form." Read Kenji Fujishima's full review of the production with the new cast here.

"If you're looking for a gorgeous, formally challenging, and finely performed show wrapped in the comforting blanket of the classics, you can do no better than Hadestown, a musical fated to be the snob hit of this Broadway season." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
