Hadestown Wins 2019 Tony Award for Best Musical
Hadestown has won the 2019 Tony Award for Best Musical. HADESTOWN intertwines two mythic tales - that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone - as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back.
Anais Mitchell's beguiling melodies and Rachel Chavkin's poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, Hadestown is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.
Starring Tony winner Andre De Shields, Tony nominees Amber Gray, Patrick Page, and Eva Noblezada, and Reeve Carney, HADESTOWN is laying at Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre after originating downtown at the New York Theatre Workshop, then going to the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, and the National Theatre in London.
