Charles McNulty of the Los Angeles Times raves emphatically about Hadestown. He states that it is one of the best if not the best pieces of musical theatre and art he has seen in his 25 years of covering musicals. McNulty says Hadestown more than deserves the Tony Award for Best Musical.
Here is an excellent excerpt from PobDust.com and Eden Arielle Gordon:
“Despite its grandiose foundations, Hadestown is so game-changing because of how relevant it is to modern life, and how intimately it explores the deepest human experiences we share. Essentially, it’s a show about working, about greed and struggle, about love in the midst of hunger and poverty; and perhaps most of all, it’s a critique of capitalism. It’s a damnation of the American ethos of greed and unchecked consumption that lift up the super-wealthy while leaving the poor in the dust, an ethos that has generated the wastefulness that created the modern environmental crisis. This is what makes the show so radical, radical enough that it may be the start of a pronounced change on Broadway and in musical theatre on the whole.”
