Hadestown extends West End performances


Hadestown extends West End performances

Due to popular demand, Hadestown gets West End extended run…

The production opens at the Lyric Theatre, London with performances from Saturday 10 February 2024 and at the weekend announced an extension to its run in the West End with tickets now available through to 22 December 2024.

Winner of 8 Tony® Awards including ‘Best Musical’ and a Grammy® Award for ‘Best Musical Theatre Album’, Hadestown returns to London five years after its sold-out run at the National Theatre in 2018.

In advance of opening in London next month, the West End company of Hadestown gave an exclusive first UK broadcast performance of the track ‘Wait For Me’ this week in front of 12k people at the AO Arena in Manchester for Big Night of Musicals 2024 by the National Lottery. The programme will air on Saturday 27 January at 7.50pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

The West End cast includes Dónal Finn (Orpheus), Grace Hodgett Young (Eurydice), Zachary James (Hades), Melanie La Barrie (Hermes) and Gloria Onitiri (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, Winny Herbert, Ryesha Higgs, Miriam Nyarko, and Simon Oskarsson as Swings.

Blending modern American folk music with New Orleans-inspired jazz, the Original Broadway Cast Recording of Hadestown is one of the most streamed cast albums of all time with over 350 million streams to date.  It won the Grammy Award® for ‘Best Musical Theatre Album’, topped Billboard’s Broadway Cast Recording chart and debuted at #8 on the Top Album chart.

Hadestown takes you on an unforgettable journey to the underworld and back, intertwining two mythic love stories – that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone.  A deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience, Hadestown invites you to imagine how the world could be.

Hadestown is produced in London by Mara Isaacs, Dale Franzen, Hunter Arnold, Tom Kirdahy and the National Theatre in association with JAS Theatricals.
