'Hadestown' Announces Principal Casting

The eagerly anticipated Broadway premiere of Hadestown will star the original principal cast of London’s sold-out production, Reeve Carney, André De Shields, Amber Gray, Eva Noblezada, and Patrick Page. 

Rachel Chavkin, director of Hadestown, said in a press release, “I’m delighted to be continuing the journey with these artists, some of whom have been with the piece since the beginning. They bring a wild combination of experience, singular musicianship, and a shared joy in mining Anaïs’ poetry and politics.”

Hadestown marks the first time in over a decade that a woman, Anaïs Mitchell, has been the solo author of a musical: writing the music, lyrics, and book, and is the fourth time in Broadway history a woman has accomplished this creative feat.

The creative team for Broadway features Drama Desk Award nominee Rachel Hauck (set design), three-time Tony Award nominee Michael Krass (costume design), Tony Award winner Bradley King (lighting design), Tony Award nominee Nevin Steinbergand Jessica Paz (sound design), three-time Bessie Award winner David Neumann (choreography), Liam Robinson (music direction and vocal arrangements), Michael Chorney, Todd Sickafoose (arrangements and orchestrations), Ken Cerniglia(dramaturgy), and Stewart/Whitley (casting).

Broadway previews of Hadestown will begin March 22, 2019 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. You can get tickets here.
