Review: HADESTOWN at The Overture Photo Review: HADESTOWN at The Overture
by Scott Rawson - Jan 25, 2023

The use of the rotating stage was well executed, and the overall energy was high. In the end, although disappointed by the book and lack of passion between the two main couples, I was glad to have seen it. id our critic think of HADES TOWN at The Overture?
