After two years off-Broadway, you can now see Hadestown on Broadway! The musical dominated the 2019 Tony Awards with nominations in 14 categories, including Best Musical. If you decide to watch Hadestown on Broadway, you’ll surely understand why.
What is Hadestown about?
The Hadestown musical tells the story of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. The two are deeply in love, but struggle to make a living. One day, when Eurydice learns about Hades’ underground factory, she feels intrigued and eventually gets lured into Hadestown. Orpheus does not hesitate and finds a way to the underworld. Hades agrees to let Eurydice leave on one condition: Orpheus needs to demonstrate his trust by leading the way out of Hadestown without looking back to see if Eurydice is following. Will he be able to resist the temptation?
Where to get Hadestown tickets
Hadestown Broadway tickets start at $79, but you need to expect to pay at least $100 for a good seat. In case Hadestown will take home as many Tony Awards as expected, prices are likely to soar due to the popularity that comes with Tony Awards.
The best seats to watch Hadestown on Broadway
The good news in regards to Hadestown tickets is that the Walter Kerr Theatre is a relatively small theater with just about below 1,000 seats, almost guaranteeing you good views from pretty much any seat. Even on the balcony, you won’t be too far from the stage. The angle, however, is what’s making sit in the balcony section less attractive. I generally recommend going for Front Mezzanine seats – they’ve never failed me. That’s also the case for watching Hadestown on Broadway. Should you prefer Orchestra seats, try not to be too close to the stage. It’s better to be in the back than the front in my opinion.
