Los Angeles Times analysis of the 2019 Tony Awards sees legendary theatre analysts and critic rave about Hadestown being one of the best musicals he has seen in his 25 years of analysis. Charles McNulty writes the following: “Based on the 2010 concept album by Anaïs Mitchell, this folk opera with a New Orleans soul is quite simply one of the most exquisite works of musical storytelling I’ve seen in my more than 25 years as a theater critic. Directed by Rachel Chavkin with all the ingenuity she brought to her previous Broadway game-changer, “Natasha, Pierre, & the Great Comet of 1812,” the production harmonizes its elements into a Wagnerian dream of a total artwork.”
