Hadestown: The Myth. The Musical. | Spring 2019
ay 16th, 7:00 pm - & 10:00pm -
We were pleased to show this acclaimed new musical Hadestown by celebrated singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin '08 (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812). After the show, there will be a special talkback with Rachel Chavkin.
Hadestown intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, Hadestown is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.
This event was free and open to the public.
