Hadestown is a new musical that just opened on Broadway, based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. It was written by musician and songwriter Anaïs Mitchell, directed by Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812), and it is the only new show on Broadway this season written and directed by women. It stars a diverse cast of performers, from Les Mis breakout Eva Noblezada, to former Penny Dreadful star Reeve Carney, to theater legend André De Shields. It has gone from a 2010 concept album to an off-Broadway show (recorded for posterity and available on Spotify!) to its current incarnation, with a Broadway cast recording coming next month.
The cast performed "The Road to Hell" on Live with Kelly and Ryan, as seen above, and "Livin' It Up on Top" on the Today Show, which can be seen under the cut. They've also posed for photoshoots, taken interviews, and are making bank at the box office. Click the cut for more Hadestown-centric content, including pics of a tall, muscled chorus member that literally made me think of ONTD.

I absolutely love this show and cannot wait to see it again. I'd highly recommend entering the lottery if you live in NYC! Have you seen any shows lately, ONTD?
