New Musical Hadestown Now In Previews

HadestownBesides working for Applause the last fifteen years, I am also a writer and composer. In fact, my original musical "Cheeseburger Deluxe" had it's world premier at the 4th Street Theatre in August 2016. Now while I have since changed the name of my show to "between hope and riverside", it still boggles my mind that my show played in the same building where my favorite musical of all time opened in 1996.

The theatre was the New York Theatre Workshop, and the show was the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical Rent. So why is this relevant you ask? Well as it turns out, while I was preparing to open my show, Broadway's newest musical Hadestown, was just wrapping up it's very first production just a few hundred feet from me. How exciting is that? Now here we are a little over two and a half years, and Hadestown is set to make it's Broadway debut.

The show, which just completed an acclaimed two month production at the National Theatre in London, is scheduled to open at the Walter Kerr Theatre on April 17. So what exactly is the show all about? Well according to the shows website,"Hadestown, set in a Great Depression inspired apocalyptic setting, is a new musical about the fateful love story of Orpheus and Eurydice, as well as the tumultuous relationship of King Hades and his wife Persephone." Sounds quite fascinating don't you think? By the way, for those of you who want tickets to see the show, you are in luck. We sell it. Well that and every new show this season on Broadway. Get your tickets to see Hadestown on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
