What is Hadestown about?

This new musical transports the action from ancient Greece to an eclectic setting akin to the buzzing New Orleans scene. Hadestown weaves together the opposing forces of nature and industry, faith and doubt, and love and death to tell the story of the guitar-toting Orpheus and his great love Eurydice as they battle the harsh landscape of Hadestown, an industrial underworld of trouble and toil that makes for a better choice than the winter-ravaged landscape above. Lured by the promise of food and shelter, Eurydice is kidnapped by Hades, a foreman-like figure who rules the mechanicals below. Orpheus sets out to save his wife, setting off a chain reaction of unrest, riot, and chaos in his fateful wake.

Hadestown is now playing at the Walter Kerr Theater.
