BRILLIANT!

Saw Hadestown at Orpheum on Tuesday - this show is BRILLIANT! Everything about it is wonderful. #Orpheus was played by the understudy & we had NO IDEA until we were on the way home. The entire cast is amazing. Do yourself a favor, IF there are tickets left while it's here, go see this show! I can see why it won so many Tony's & this cast lives up to that standard.

MISSED SEEING NICHOLAS BARASCH AS ORPHEUS

We went Sunday March 20th. Sold out show!! It was very good and enjoyed the understudy, Chibueze Ihuoma, as Orpheus. Just wanted to see Nicholas. Also, the workers chorus- is there someone with cancer? I hope the dancer is doing okay and is not ill.

BEST SAN DIEGO STAGING EVER

The stars were aligned tonight with Broadway (and yes I have seen Broadway plays) level singing and instrumentals. Images in dance were powerful and moving. Glorious set design and staging. Loved the story, too! My political bent; but, warning, not too subtle on women's rights, immigration, climate change and corporate power and greed!

5.0 star rating Matthew Dann from Costa Mesa, California

SINGING UNEVEN

A lot of this is just so good. Marable, morrow, kreis. I am not sure what was going on with the tenor. Was the falsetto supposed to be like countertenor? Which would be great, that's an unearthly sound that would fit the plot. Sadly, it was screeching. The night I was there anyway

SOME OUTSTANDING WORK BY NON LEADS

The musicians are without fault, as is the chorus. But the the three women singing the fates are remarkable. Hardest working gals I've ever seen. On stage almost all the time, singing most of the time, playing musical instruments, and some very complicated blocking.

AMAZING MUSIC, SOME WEAK POINTS IN THIS PRODUCTION

The music is gorgeous, let's get that clear, and there is some very creative staging. I've not seen other productions, so I'm not sure whether the set was modified for this space, but while it was engaging and clever, it seemed way too cramped, limiting options for the cast and making for some repetitive blocking. The real love story was Hades and Persephone, who were remarkable. Orpheus and Eurydice didn't convey much chemistry, and it was hard to be invested in their romance. Her choice to go to Hades seemed abrupt and confusing, given how much in love she's supposed to be. The decision to have Orpheus sing in a very high falsetto was unfortunate; it was unpleasant to listen to, almost comedic, and didn't carry that sense of the magical voice he's supposed to have. Overall, though, amazing cast and voices.
