‘Hadestown’ Announces Tour and Cast Updates

In response to overwhelming audience enthusiasm and critical acclaim, the producers of Hadestown are thrilled to announce that the North American Tour will extend through the spring of 2024, adding engagements in cities across the United States and Canada.

Delayed from 2020 due to the pandemic, Hadestown began its North American tour in the fall of 2021. The tour has played 335 performances in 27 U.S. cities to date and been seen by more than 683,000 audience members across the country.

Starting October 4, 2022, in Houston, Texas, the North American Tour will welcome new principal cast members, including Nathan Lee Graham as Hermes, Maria-Christina Oliveras as Persephone, Matthew Patrick Quinn as Hades, and Hannah Whitley as Eurydice. Chibueze Ihuoma, who launched the tour as a member of the Workers Chorus and assumed the role of Orpheus in June 2022 will continue as Orpheus.

The Fates will be played by Dominique KempfBelén MoyanoNyla Watson. The Workers Chorus will feature Jordan BollwerkLindsey HailesCourtney LausterEddie Noel Rodríguez, and Jamari Johnson Williams. Swings for the tour will include Tyla CollierIan Coulter-BufordAlex LugoJ. Antonio Rodriguez, and Cecilia Trippiedi.

Morgan Siobhan Green (Eurydice), Kimberly Marable (Persephone), and Kevyn Morrow (Hades), who launched the North American Tour of Hadestown last fall, will play their final performance at the Tulsa PAC in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Sunday, October 2. Levi Kreis (Hermes) will play his final performance at Bass Hall in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, September 25.

Produced by Mara Isaacs, Dale Franzen, Hunter Arnold, and Tom Kirdahy, Hadestown is the most honored show of the 2018-2019 Broadway season. In addition to the show’s eight Tony Awards including Best New Musical and the 2020 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, it has been honored with four Drama Desk Awards, six Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Outstanding New Broadway Musical, and the Drama League Award for Outstanding Production of a Musical.

Following two intertwining love stories — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — Hadestown invites audiences 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 delivers a deeply resonant and defiantly hopeful theatrical experience.
