Here is why we at Broadway Inbound think it's a perfect show for groups:
Directed by the brilliant Rachel Chavkin and led by the unique and skillful vision of Anaïs Mitchell, Hadestown blends genres, visions, and myths to create its own unforgettable tale. It’s beautiful. Mitchell's outstanding music showcases a massive range of folk, soul, gospel, and blues idioms, rendered with years of perfecting, polishing, and reinventing. It’s impossible not to get caught up in the songs and the meaning behind them. The songs give insight into each character and are relatable to everyone in the audience, be it the theme of love, a search for a better future, regrets, or freedom.
Hadestown is a retelling of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, set against a more familiar background inspired by the New Orleans jazz bar scene around 1920s-30s. Orpheus is determined to save his beloved Eurydice from Hadestown and sets off on a journey to the underworld to find her. Along the way, he must face challenges sent by the gods as well as those found from within himself.
With 8 Tony Awards® and a Grammy Award for Best Original Score to its name, Hadestown is a musical phenomenon in its own right. Don’t miss your opportunity to experience one of the most acclaimed musicals of our time with your own eyes.
It’s an especially great choice for those who consider themselves avid Broadway theatre-goers. Seeing Hadestown with a group isn’t just about watching the show—you can take advantage of the full New York City theatre experience. Broadway is a magical place where you can immerse yourself into another world of fantasies and forget about all your daily problems for a while. Just trust us on this one: go see it. It’s timeless.
