HADESTOWN to open at London’s Lyric Theatre February 2024

West end news daily

Hadestown has confirmed the return of this multi-award-winning new musical to the UK. Winner of 8 Tony Awards including ‘Best Musical’ and a Grammy Award for ‘Best Musical Theatre Album’, Hadestown will make its West End premiere at the Lyric Theatre from Saturday 10 February 2024. This announcement marks the show’s highly anticipated return to London five years after its sold out run at the National Theatre in 2018.

Hadestown features music, lyrics and book by acclaimed Grammy® winning singer-songwriter and BBC Radio 2 Folk Award-winner Anaïs Mitchell, who originated Hadestown as an indie theatre project and acclaimed album. Mitchell then transformed the show into a genre-defying new musical alongside artistic collaborator and Tony® Award-winning director Rachel Chavkin, whose theatre credits include Mission Drift (National Theatre) and American Clock (The Old Vic).

Hadestown takes you on an unforgettable 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. A deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience, Hadestown invites you to imagine how the world could be.
