FYI Calendar: ‘Hadestown’ brings music of Anaïs Mitchell to WAC

by Becca Martin-Brown | May 25, 2023 at 1:00 a.m.
“I think I identified with both Orpheus and Eurydice when I first started writing it. Orpheus, because he’s this songwriter trying to change the world through art — I’ve been there! And Eurydice, because she gets caught between her romantic ideals on the one hand, and the realities of life on the other. That’s a crossroads a lot of young people face,” says playwright and folk musician Anaïs Mitchell of her award-winning musical, Hadestown. Antonio Rodriguez and Hannah Whitley star in the in Hadestown North American Tour. The show comes to the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville May 23-28. Tickets start at $75 at (Courtesy Photo/T.
