The cast and creative team of Hadetown hosted a special post-show sign event celebrating the release of their Grammy Award-nominated cast album on vinyl and CD on stage at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York after the performance on December 12.
Fans who won the lottery lined up outside the theater and were serenaded by Anaïs Mitchell, Director Rachel Chavkin, Music Director Liam Robinson and cast members Reeve Carney, Tony Award winner André De Shields, Tony Award nominee Amber Gray, Tony Award nominee Eva Noblezada, Tony Award nominee Patrick Page, Jewelle Blackman, Kay Trinidad,
Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer, Malcolm Armwood, Afra Hines, Timothy Hughes, John Krause, Kimberly Marable, T. Oliver Reid, Jessie Shelton, Ahmad Simmons (original cast member), and Khaila Wilcoxon. The signing event was hosted by Christine of ALT 92.3.
Hadestown is the most honored show of the 2018-2019 season having just been nominated for the 2020 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. The new musical has received eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, 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.
Following two intertwining love stories — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — Hadestown invites audiences on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers, and singers, Hadestown delivers a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience.
