iHeartRadio Broadway is presenting a weekly program to help support the Broadway community while the industry is dark during the COVID-19 crisis – the iHeartRadio Broadway’s Saturday Matinee.
iHeartRadio Broadway is bringing theater fans closer to the music by playing cast albums from the current season and beyond, cover-to-cover, Hadestown will be featured on Saturday April 25th at 2pm on the iHeartRadio Broadway station. Each week, the iHeartRadio Broadway Saturday Matinee will feature cast and creators of scheduled Broadway shows hosting the program by providing pre-record sound bites that were created in the comfort of their own homes. These liners will include fun facts, cast stories and moments from each production. The Saturday Matinee will continue each week until Broadway is back up and running.
Anaïs Mitchell developed the Hadestown with director and Tony Award winner Rachel Chavkin which was the most honored and critically acclaimed new musical of 2019.
