Today, Hadestown producers Mara Isaacs, Dale Franzen, Hunter Arnold, and Tom Kirdahy announced that original Broadway cast member Eva Noblezada will play her final performance as ‘Eurydice’ in Hadestown, Broadway’s Tony Award®-winning Best Musical, on Sunday, August 13.
Noblezada began playing ‘Eurydice’ in 2018 at London’s National Theatre before transferring with the production to Broadway in 2019. The Wall Street Journalheralded Noblezada as “impossible to resist” while Entertainment Weekly called her performance “stellar.” She went on to receive a Tony nomination for her performance in the celebrated musical, as well as a Grammy Award®.
Written by Anaïs Mitchell and directed by Rachel Chavkin, Hadestown is currently playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 W 48th Street).
Mitchell commented, “Eva’s Eurydice is/was everything – punk rock, tender, mythic. She seems to throw sparks all over the stage. She can do literally anything (and she will!) and I’m forever grateful she chose to spend so much time in Hadestown. We love you, Eva!”
Noblezada said, “I could’ve never dreamed of the extent of how much my life would be radically blessed by this epic love song of a show. As heartbreaking as it feels to leave, I am comforted by the gloriously infinite memories this show has given me and I know I can look back whenever and be serenaded by them. There will always be endless love when I think of all the people who were/are part of the adventure. The casts! Crew members and our creative team. Our producers and company management. Family. And especially the tens of thousands of people who support Hadestown and hold the show in their hearts just like we do. Through all iterations, this show will always be about love and rebirth. Muchas Gracias. Salamat. Thank you all so much. Peace out!”
