Hadestown in London

Step into the enchanting world of Hadestown, back in London five years after its sold-out run at the National Theatre in 2018. Ancient mythology meets modern storytelling in this Tony Award-winning musical. Book your Hadestown tickets now for a theatrical experience that transports you to a realm where love, hope, and redemption collide in the heart of the West End.

Why you should see Hadestown

  • The show received the most nominations at the 73rd Tony Awards and went on to win eight, including Best Musical and Best Original Score.
  • Hadestown underwent a journey of twelve years of development, starting as a DIY project back in 2006.
  • It's not just the show itself that has award-winning quality, the Original Broadway Cast Recording also won a Grammy Award.

What's the plot of Hadestown?

Hadestown reveals a fresh new version of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Eurydice is a young girl who’s starving, desperate for food. She starts work in a hellish new version of the Greek underworld to get away from her poverty-stricken life. But the underworld isn’t what she expected, and when her equally poverty-stricken boyfriend Orpheus comes to rescue her, things get tricky. According to Forbes, this is ‘An epic celebration of music, togetherness and hope’. The New York Times calls it ‘Sumptuous. Gorgeous. As good as it gets.’ Not to be missed!

The cast and creative team for the West End premiere of Hadestown

The West End cast will include Dónal Finn (The Wheel of Time, Amazon, Grace Hodgett Young (Sunset Boulevard, West End) as Eurydice, Grammy® Award-winner Zachary James (The Addams Family, Broadway) as Hades, Melanie La Barrie (& Juliet, West End) as Hermes and Gloria Onitiri (Hadestown, National Theatre) as Persephone.

Bella Brown, Madeline Charlemagne, and Allie Daniel will play the Fates and Lauren Azania, Tiago Dhondt Bamberger, Beth Hinton-Lever, Waylon Jacobs, and Christopher Short will play the Workers, with Lucinda Buckley, Ryesha Higgs, Miriam Nyarko, and Simon Oskarsson as Swings.

The Hadestown creative team features Cheography from Obie Award® winner and Chita Rivera Award® winner David Neumann, Tony Award® winner Rachel Hauck for Set Designer, four-time Tony® Award nominee Michael Krass for Costume Design, Lighting Design from two-time Tony Award® winner Bradley King, Sound Design from Tony® Award winners Nevin Steinberg and Jessica Paz, Music Supervision and Vocal Arrangements from Liam Robinson, Tony® Award winners Michael Chorney and Todd Sickafoose for Arrangements and Orchestrations, and Ken Cerniglia for Dramaturgy.
