Hadestown, the musical of Greek myths brought to you by Stranahan Theater in the city of Toledo performing, on the Wednesday 14th February 2024, Anaïs Mitchell’s hypnotizing melodies and director Rachel Chavkin’s graceful imagination set an industrial post-apocalyptic setting against human character, doubt versus belief, and fright against devotion.

Grab your tickets now for Hadestown at Stranahan Theater and see if you can get out with your soul.
Composer and lyricist Anaïs Mitchell wrote the composition, verses, and narrative for the show Hadestown. It narrates a retold version of the time-honored myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Eurydice, a maiden facing starvation, sets out to work in a harsh industrial depiction of the Greek underworld to escape poverty and freezing conditions. Her beau Orpheus, a penniless singer-songwriter, sets off on a journey to reclaim her.
During its first Broadway unveiling, the show garnered 14 Tony Awards mentions, securing eight prestigious awards. It achieved itself the desired designation of ‘Best Musical,’ greatly delighting the ardent fans. The presentation premiered on Broadway on April 17, 2019, gaining commendation. It was commended for its guidance and the remarkable acting by André De Shields. The New York Times described it as "exquisite" and "mesmerizing," praising its improvement over the New York Theatre Workshop version. David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter pronounced it "absolutely fabulous," highlighting in particular Gray and Page's exceptional performances.
TimeOut NY urges its followers to experience the marvelous interpretation of Hadestown. They expressed, “Here's my advice: Attend hell. And by hell, I mean Hadestown, Anaïs Mitchell's engaging and evocative new Broadway musical. In short, the production gives a new twist to the age-old Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice: A young man meets a girl, they fall in love, they face hardships, they go through trials, yet they find themselves in the underworld—sounds similar to a old story, right? But it's Anaïs Mitchell's contemporary take on this enduring tale—and Rachel Chavkin's—that brought life back to this time-honored narrative.”
