Saw this show on broadway, and loved every minute of it. Such an amazing piece of art. I’m definitely going to try to see it again.

5.0 star rating Bobbie Theodoore from El Dorado Hills, CA


Hadestown is so unique and colorful, perfectly written. It should appeal to a diverse audience wanting something deeper than a movie adaption. The music will stay in your head and the existential question at the center of the show warrants follow-up conversation.

5.0 star rating H Brown from Northampton, MA


The audience leapt to their feet at he close of Hadestown for a well deserved standing ovation. Bravo. The musicians, cast especially understudy Orpheus performed without fault. One leaves with a feeling of hope not despair. A memorable performance. Come experience for yourselves.

5.0 star rating CSA from Boston, Massachusetts


Absolutely Amazing. The cast was perfect from the leads to the chorus. Nicholas Barasche had a voice like an angel. Loved everything about it, kept me captivated from the first word spoken. What a perfect night at the Theatre. Boston Opera House was such a great venue.

5.0 star rating John from Detroit, Michigan


This show blew my socks off. In fact, I saw it two nights in a row. The musicians were OUTSTANDING, and every single actor was phenomenal. They brought this show to life in such a unique and heart-wrenching way. I highly recommend catching this show if you can!!

5.0 star rating R. Holley from Hammond, La


I did not know what to expect. My wife filled me in on the story line and I understood it was basically a Greek Tragedy with a modern adaptation. As the story line unfolded on stage, from the moment Hermes addressed the audience, I felt captivated by the plight of the players and their tragic fate. Hermes was phenomenal as was Hades. The actors/performers seemed to fit their characters very well. Their voices, demeanor and stature were remarkable. I have seen a number of performances at the Saenger and enjoyed myself every time. They respect the COVID protocols and enforce them for those who are otherwise at risk. Even the musicians on stage were masked unless their instrument prevented them from wearing one. By the way, the musicians including the conductor/pianist were exceptionally talented. Recommend attending this one and think all will enjoy.

5.0 star rating Kevin from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Saw Hadestown at Academy of Music (Phila), and was brought to tears by it’s beauty. We Had been listening to its original broadway cast recordings for months prior, and couldn’t believe the likeness and uniqueness of THIS off broadway cast. Also, seeing the show brought everything musically together for us. Every lyric a conundrum of thought and perfection. Bravo!!!!

5.0 star rating Carol Parker from Minneapolis, Minnesota


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.

5.0 star rating Deb Skinner from Minneapolis, Minnesota


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.

5.0 star rating Barbara Amster from San Diego, California


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


Wow!! What a thrill!! Outstanding performances! Can’t believe that every singer has an outstanding voice and what a great story line so much fun!! If you wanna treat yourself to a great deal of fun wonderful music great characters lively energetic can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed Hades town!!

4.0 star rating Opera lover from Washington, District of Columbia


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

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.

4.0 star rating Joy from Boston, MA


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.

4.0 star rating Rmh from Columbus, Ohio


I loved the show except for the falsetto used by Orpheus. In the myth, his singing was supposed to be magical. As soon as I heard the falsetto, I whispered a quiet prayer: “Oh please, don’t do that again.” It certainly wasn’t magical. All other aspects of the show are well adapted for touring. Choreography and dancing are outstanding. Overall, the company has everything “Hadestown” requires.

3.0 star rating Jeff Portner from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Best part of the show is the set, lighting, costumes, band ( especially the trombonist), and choreography. Music is pleasant, nothing memorable. Leads were well cast and all sang well. Show is a bit long, could be 20 minutes shorter and better at that length. The story is thin, which is odd considering the richness of the source material.

2.0 star rating Gary Myers from Greenville, South Carolina


First the start with Hermes showing off his clothes - sorry, not funny. As a matter of fact there is very little humor in this musical. The singing - especially Orpheus, not good. His falsetto was... at times ear tearing. Overall we just didn't feel "involved" - there was little there to bring you in, to CARE ... out of many many musicals seen - probably bottom 10% ranking for both my wife and I.
