See Smash Broadway Hit ‘HADESTOWN’ at Bass Concert Hall, January 11-16, 2022
‘HADESTOWN’, winner of eight Tony Awards 2019Â® including Best New Musical and the 2020 GrammyÂ® Award for Best Album in Musical Theater, debuted in Austin as part of Texas Performing Arts’ 2021-22 Broadway season in Austin. “HADESTOWN” will play Bass Concert Hall January 11-16, 2022.
“HADESTOWN” is the most honored show of the 2018-19 season on Broadway. In addition to the show’s eight Tony AwardsÂ®, he received 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 acclaimed new musical is from acclaimed singer-songwriter and Tony AwardÂ® winner Anais mitchell and developed with an innovative director and Tony AwardÂ® winner Rachel Chavkin. “HADESTOWN” marks the first time in more than a decade that a woman has been the solo writer of a musical: writing the music, the lyrics and the book, and it’s the fourth time in history of Broadway that a woman accomplishes this creative feat.
Producers Mara isaacs, Dale franzen, Hunter Arnold, and Tom kirdahy jointly said, âThroughout its development, ‘HADESTOWN’ has been deeply influenced by audiences around the world. We are delighted and honored to now share this beautiful story of hope, faith and rebirth – written and performed by two incredibly talented women and hosted by a diverse company of performers – with audiences across North America.
The show originated Mitchell’s independent theater project which toured Vermont, which she then turned into an acclaimed album. With his artistic collaborator Chavkin, “HADESTOWN” was transformed into a new genre-defying musical that mixes modern American folk music with New Orleans-inspired jazz to reinvent an ancient tale.
The North American Touring Production of “HADESTOWN” Drama Desk Award starsÂ® candidate Nicolas barasch like Orpheus, Morgan Siobhan Green as Eurydice, Tony AwardÂ® winner Levi Kreis like HermÃ¨s, Kimberly marable as PersÃ©phone, and Olivier AwardÂ® candidate Kevin Morrow like Hades.
The Fates are played by BelÃ©n Moyano, Bex Odorisio, and Shea Rennes. Characteristics of the workers’ choir Lindsey Hailes, Chibueze Ihuoma, Will mann, Sydney Parra, and Jamari johnson williams. Swings for touring production include Kimberly Emmanuel, Alex lugo, Eddie Noel Rodriguez, and Nathan Salstone.
After two intertwined love stories – that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone – “HADESTOWN” invites the public on a hellish journey into the underworld and vice versa. Mitchell’s haunting melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a dynamic ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, “HADESTOWN” offers a deeply resonant and hopeful theatrical experience.
