Hadestown is an immersive, nearly operatic, spiritual and emotional experience. Mythological stories and characters are used to tell the endlessly repeating human condition through song and incredibly physical choreography. The jazz and blues style of music is distinctively American, but Hadestown touches all the light and dark reservoirs of humanity. Although the themes are dark — fear, doubt, confusion, servitude, death, death — the singing, movement and inhabited characters bring a sense of joy and optimism that infuse the whole experience. Rachel Chakin and Anais Mitchell have created a theatrical experience for all to enjoy. See it! ~ Leanne Russo, Guest Critic
