"I’m thrilled to be able to share this teen edition of Hadestown! I can’t wait to see how young people bring their own ideas and experience to this mythic story,” said Mitchell.
Following two intertwining love stories – that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of immortal King Hades and Lady Persephone – Hadestown invites audiences on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Inspired by traditions of classic American folk music and vintage New Orleans jazz, Mitchell’s beguiling sung-through musical pits industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Together with visionary director Rachel Chavkin and longtime arrangement / orchestration collaborators Michael Chorney and Todd Sickafoose, Mitchell’s intriguing and beautiful folk opera delivers a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience.

Hadestown was the most honored show of the 2018-2019 season. In addition to winning eight Tony Awards, the show has been honored with four Drama Desk Awards, six Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Outstanding New Broadway Musical, and the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Musical.
The GRAMMY Award-winning Original Broadway Cast Recording of Hadestown
from Sing It Again Records is available on CD, vinyl, and streaming.

Hadestown is produced on Broadway by Mara Isaacs, Dale Franzen, Hunter Arnold and Tom Kirdahy. The 2016 world premiere at New York Theatre Workshop electrified audiences and is the longest-running show in that celebrated theater’s 40-year history. The production received its Canadian premiere at Edmonton’s Citadel Theatre in 2017 and then enjoyed a 2018 sold-out engagement at London’s National Theatre prior to Broadway. Hadestown was developed with funding from the Eli and Edythe Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center and was further developed by New York Stage and Film Company and The Ground Floor at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Hadestown was co-conceived by Ben t. Matchstick.
Now in its third year, the North American Tour is currently playing in Boston, with upcoming engagements now on sale in Philadelphia, Syracuse, New Haven, Charlotte and Toronto.
