Hadestown Will Sing Its Mythic Tale on Broadway This Spring
The new folk-opera musical Hadestown has found its Broadway home! Currently running at the National Theatre in London, Hadestown originally premiered off-Broadway in 2016 before transferring to Canada for a limited engagement. It will begin performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre on March 22, with an opening night set for mid April. Hadestown invites audiences to journey to the underworld and back, as it follows two intertwining love stories - Orpheus and Eurydice and Hades and Persephone - in a deeply resonant and timeless story.
