Musical Review: Hadestown

Hello all! 

I first heard of this musical back in summer 2019 and i liked the concept of it because i am obsessed with Greek mythology :D And then, this musical became super popular and i wasn't sure if i would like it. 

But once winter's night, i decided to take the plunge and listen to it. And good gosh, was i wrong. I really really really loved it! Its so good!!! There is very little swearing and little mention of drunkenness. But the story is amazing. It interweaves the stories of Hades and Persephone and Orpheus and Eurydice. i laughed and i cried and generally had a great time :)

  1. Okay, I have GOT to listen to this musical - I was so worried about the content (it being about Greek gods and all), but I’m very encouraged by this! :D

  2. I just clicked on this post, because I saw the name Hades and clicked on it. (I am a HUGE Greek mythology fan). The only thing that bugged me was the fact that they called it "Hell" since there is no Hell in Greek mythology, the only thing that is like hell is Tartarus, the other parts of the Underworld are less Hell-ish.
    But it sounds cool and I will definitely check it out!! :D

    1. Yeah that bugged me too. Let me know what you think!!

  3. I heard about this late last year and have been wondering if you liked it! I'll have to try it soon!

  4. Combining Persephone/Hades and Euridice/Orpheus is kinda genius. I'll have to check this out. :)

  5. I've been meaning to listen to this one. If you like it, it must be good.

  6. This musical is so beautiful and heartbreaking and just so good!
