Hadestown

March 22 - April 17, 2019

After a critically acclaimed Off-Broadway run at the New York Theater Workshop in the Summer of 2016, dazzlingly inventive folk opera Hadestown returns to the Big Apple to make its fully-fledged Broadway bow at a theatre yet to be announced in 2019. The brainchild of celebrated indie folk singer-songwriter Anais Mitchell and Tony-nominated experimental theatre director Rachel Chavkin, who helmed smash-hit 'Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812', the musical fuses elements of Greek myth with Mitchell's emotionally-charged concept album of the same name.

Designed by Herbert J.

It has undergone various changes as a radio and tv station from 1943 to 1965, a children's film theater and finally reopened as a theatre in 1990, named for the eminent critic and playwright.
