The orginal Broadway cast of Hadestown.

Hadestown takes you on a journey to the underworld and back, intertwining two mythic love stories – that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone. 

It is described as a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience, with groups of ten or more able to save money on tickets to select performances, now up to 22nd December.

In advance of opening in London, the West End company gave an exclusive first UK broadcast performance of the track Wait For Me in front of 12,000 people at the AO Arena in Manchester for Big Night of Musicals 2024 by the National Lottery.
