Tony Award-winner Lillias White is extending her run as Hermes, messenger of the Gods, in the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of HADESTOWN at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 48th Street). A final performance date will be announced shortly.
HADESTOWN also stars Grammy Award® winner Reeve Carney as Orpheus, two-time Tony Award nominee Eva Noblezada as Eurydice, Jewelle Blackman as Persephone and Tony Award® nominee Tom Hewitt as Hades.
They are joined by Amelia Cormack, Lindsey Hailes, and Brit West as the Fates. The chorus of Workers is played by Emily Afton, Malcolm Armwood, Sayo Oni, Alex Puette, and Grace Yoo. The cast includes swings Brandon Cameron, Max Kumangai, and Yael “YaYa” Reich, and Allysa Shorte.
HADESTOWN originated as Anaïs Mitchell’s indie theater project that toured Vermont which she then turned into an acclaimed album. With Rachel Chavkin, her artistic collaborator, HADESTOWN has been transformed into a genre-defying new musical that blends modern American folk music with New Orleans-inspired jazz to reimagine a sweeping ancient tale.
