A way to gauge of a performance's triumph is its haul of Tony Awards, and the remarkable production has several. Among the 14 nominations it received for the 2019 Tony Awards, the show clinched eight victories, among them the much-coveted title of Best Musical. Moreover, the musical was honored with accolades for its mesmerizing musical score by David Mitchell, the masterful direction of Rachel Chavkin, the standout performance by André De Shields, the ingenious scenic design, the striking sound design, the expert lighting design, and the artful orchestrations.
In Anais Mitchell's reimagining of a Hellenic story, Eurydice is depicted as a young woman adept in navigating on her own in a world filled with unpredictability, even in meteorological patterns. Conversely, Orpheus is a fervent singer-songwriter brimming with emotions. Upon their first meeting, Eurydice is lured into an underworld factory, in which Hades transforms his workers into automated drones.
Orpheus embarks on a journey to retrieve her, and aided by his harmonious tunes and Persephone (Hades' wife), he manages to bringing her back to his residence.
The cast is small, consisting of just 13 members, who stay on center stage for the majority of the show. The choir consists of five cast members, who lend their voices and dance in the background to boost the energy of the songs. Included among the actors the 3 Fates, who sing, converse, and interact with the characters. The full seven-piece band for "Hadestown" delivers the full performance while all excluding the drummer are visible on stage. The main characters encompass the deities Hades and Persephone, as well as Orpheus and his beloved Eurydice.
Entertainment Weekly showered accolades on the Broadway rendition, stating, “When it comes to tales as ancient as time, the narratives of Greek mythology rank at the top, those epic stories of gods and mortals that have been recounted for centuries, inspiring endless interpretations. However, there's something remarkably modern and fresh about the manner in which those stories - those ancient ballads, those poignant ballads - are delivered in Hadestown. As it premieres on Broadway, this journey to the underworld feels as if it were a novel creation.”
