Previews begin March 22 with opening night set for April 17 with an open run.SYNOPSIS: Hadestown follows two intertwining love stories—that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone—as it invites audiences on an epic journey to the underworld and back.CAST: Reeve Carney (Orpheus), Eva Noblezada (Eurydice), André De Sheilds (Hermes), Amber Gray (Persephone), Patrick Page (Hades), Jewelle Blackman (Fate), Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer (Fate), Kay Trinidad (Fate), Afra Hines, Timothy Hughes, John Krause, Kimberly Marable, Ahmad Simmons, Malcolm Armwood, T. Oliver Reid, Jessie Shelton, and Khailia Wilcoxon

Hadestown is everything. I can understand your excitement. I am looking forward to see what changes have been made since London. Some thoughts on the transformation of Hadestown:https://tiny-journey.com/2019/01/14/transformations-hadestown/
I got tickets to "Workshop Night" next Monday. When I bought them I just assumed it was a working dress rehearsal with an audience, as a benefit for NYTW... but I haven't heard anything from NYTW since. Anyone have any more details of what this is?

Thanks. Looks like I don't have to buy tickets to a regular performance after all.
Attending 7/21 matinee as part of my still-forming NYC theatre week. Can't afford the pricier seats, but got two on the aisle in row G, mezzanine. Also have tickets for Mockingbird (saw it last year and loved it) and Moulin Rouge in previews (saw the Boston production and have better seats this time). Still have four slots that I may fill.
I would recommend Oklahoma!, The Prom, Come From Away, and My Fair Lady for those other 4 slots
Any word on a rush for this?
RippedMan said: "Any word on a rush for this?"Just started a separte thread but here:Today it was announced that the much anticipated Hadestown will have a Digital Lottery, General Rush, and Standing Room policy. The digital lottery is a Lucky Seat so you enter in a week at a time and find out a day in advance. For the rush it's $42.50 cash/credit card when the Box Office opens (even for two show days) subject to availability and 2 per person.For standing room, this will begin the performance after they officially open, that would be Friday Friday, April 19 for the first SRO, and will be priced at $39. They are available when the show is sold out, cash/credit card, and 2 per person.

Seeing it on the 30th! I’m very excited as I live in the Midwest and rarely get to see previews! Will definetly make a long post about my thoughts after.
I'll be attending the first preview! Been eagerly awaiting this one for upwards of eight years. Can't wait to share my thoughts.
Have a great time!

Saw The Prom last visit and Come From Away on tour in San Francisco recently. Am going to wait for Fair Lady tour and have zero interest in Oklahoma!Am hoping that Kiss Me, Kate extends. Network also.
Looking forward to reading the reviews on this one. I haven't bought tickets yet but this is high on my wish list.Also, Lucky Seat has been updating their site over the past couple weeks. I was just able to enter the lottery for all of next week however, they now require a log-in. I used to be able to just enter by filling in my info each time. I also didn't see the full week until I logged in.
I assume that discount code for the $49 seats during Previews is no longer accessible?
Did anyone attend invited dress? Any reports? I'm looking forward to hearing reports from the first preview tonight.
