T. Charles Erickson
Kimberly Marable and company in the Hadestown touring production.
A refreshing post-apocalyptic retelling of a classic Greek myth, Tony- and Grammy-winning musical Hadestown
promises to rain down a harmonious and hope-infused version of Hell on San Antonio audiences.
Hailed for its suspense and character complexity, Hadestown
follows the young and scrappy folk musician Orpheus on a tumultuous quest to the Underworld. Armed with nothing but songs and unyielding determination, he vies to rescue his lover Eurydice, who has — in a haze of powerlessness and self-doubt — unknowingly signed her soul away to Hades.
Through ambitious set design and a bone-chilling score peppered with indie rock influences, Hadestown
explores the convergences of love, fear and sacrifice in an unforgettable amalgamation of tragedy and triumph.
