Orpheum Theater San Francisco | San Francisco, California
The producers of Hadestown believed that their production would be up again very soon after they faced disruptions due to the lockdown restrictions. They said, “Spring will come again,” so Hadestown was the first production to reopen on Broadway on 2nd September, 2021 and sold out immediately. Their upcoming shows are in demand so if you’re looking to attend a Hadestown performance, make sure you buy your tickets quickly! Hadestown comes to Orpheum Theatre San Francisco on Thursday 9th June 2022 as part of their North American Tour that kicks off on 15th October in Washington D.C’s Kennedy Center.
In 2012, writer Anais Mitchell collaborated with director Rachel Chavkin and started working on stage production with additional songs and dialogue. Since then, Hadestown has won a Grammy for the Best Musical Theater Album in 2020 and eight Tony awards. Hadestown has gone international, as this year they had their first international production in Seoul, South Korea. In May 2016, Hadestown premiered off-Broadway and ran through July at the New York Theatre Workshop. It was followed by engagements in London and Canada. In March 2019, they officially premiered on Broadway.
Hadestown’s producers expressed great excitement on returning to the stage, and they firmly believe that Hadestown going live again is a revival of theatre itself. Based on ancient Greek mythology, Hadestown recreates a mythical story of young Eurydice, Orpheus, King Hades, and his wife, Persephone. Eurydice goes to the underworld to rescue Orpheus, his lover.
Chavkin’s Tony-winning score and Anais Mitchell’s superb storytelling are a combination that provides an experience of a lifetime. If you’re looking for a truly incredible musical theatre experience, make sure you buy your tickets right now before they immediately sell out!
