  2. Broadway’s “Hadestown” | Talks at Google

    Listen in for an exciting performance and discussion with the cast of Broadway’s "Hadestown", nominated for 14 2019 Tony Awards, including Best Musical!

    2:35 - Anais performing "I Raise My Cup" 4:50 - Eva and Reeve performing "All I’ve Ever Known"

    Panelists include: Anais Mitchell (Book, lyrics, music), Andre De Shields (Hermes), Reeve Carney (Orpheus), Eva Noblezada (Eurydice), Amber Gray (Persephone), and Patrick Page (Hades).

    HADESTOWN intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, HADESTOWN is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.
