Lillias White Extends Run in Hadestown for the Final Time

Hadestown announced today that Tony Award winner Lillias White has extended her run as Hermes for the final time in the Tony Award-winning Best Musical at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Her final performance will be Sunday, March 17, 2024.

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.

Hadestown currently stars Betty Who as Persephone, Jordan Fisher as Orpheus, Phillip Boykin as Hades, and Solea Pfeiffer as Eurydice. They are joined by, Belén Moyano, Kay Trinidad, and Brit West as the Fates. The chorus of Workers is played by Emily Afton, Malcolm Armwood, Chibueze Ihumoa, Alex Puette and Grace Yoo. The cast includes swings Sojourner Brown, Brandon Cameron,Tara Jackson, Max Kumangai, Alex Lugo, and Tanner Ray Wilson. As previously announced, Ani DiFranco and Lola Tung will join the production as Persephone and Eurydice, respectively, on February 9, 2024.

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.
