Here is why we at Broadway Inbound think it's a perfect show for groups:
The creative team behind Hadestown is fantastic. They have created a truly unique and innovative Broadway musical from the score to the sets and costumes. Hadestown has been called one of the most original and evocative musicals of the past decade, getting acclaim from both audiences and critics. Of course, the show would only have become the hit that it is with its team's creative vision and hard work. Thanks to them, we get to experience a truly one-of-a-kind story of love and hope.
The music of Hadestown is truly something special. Some might say this is one of the best Broadway soundtracks ever written. From the haunting and ethereal “Hey, Little Songbird” to the heart-wrenching ballad “Wait for Me,” the songs will stay with you long after the curtain falls. 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 tells the classic tale of Orpheus and Eurydice, transported into a more grounded setting of the New Orleans jazz bar scene around the 1920s-30s. To save Eurydice, Orpheus risks everything and goes on a quest to the realm of Hades—the underworld known as Hadestown. As part of his pursuit, the musician is challenged by both the gods and his own human nature.
The Tony Awards® is the highest honor in American theater, and Hadestown won eight of them. These awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire cast and crew and are a fitting tribute to the brilliance of the music and story. Come see the show and experience the power of this music for yourself.
Hadestown is the perfect musical for Broadway fans that think they have seen it all. The breathtaking score will carry you down to the dark and mysterious underworld of Hadestown. Together with its heroes and villains, you’ll experience heartbreak, pain, hope, and the life-changing power of music. If you are deciding what show to see with a group on Broadway, Hadestown is an excellent choice. This show is a true classic in the making.
