CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: Much feted on Broadway, the road show for Hadestown — “where a song can change your fate” — comes to The Fox in January. Written by singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell (her first musical) and developed with director Rachel Chavkin, it combines the mythic tales of Orpheus and Eurydice, along with those of King Hades and his wife Persephone. Audiences are invited “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,” the press release says. The touring production starsNathan Lee Graham as Hermes, Chibueze Ihuoma as Orpheus, Maria-Christina Oliveras as Persephone, Matthew Patrick Quinn as Hades, and Hannah Whitley as Eurydice. The show originated as an independent theater project which then became an acclaimed album. With Chavkin, Mitchell’s artistic collaborator, Hadestown has been adapted into “a genre-defying new musical that blends modern American folk music with New Orleans-inspired jazz to reimagine a sweeping ancient tale.” Vogue called it  “your next musical theater obsession” and the Los Angeles Times’ Charles McNulty said the show “achieves a fluidity of musical theater storytelling that makes an old tale seem startlingly new.” — KCM
