    I actually don’t think Hadestown passes the Bechdel test.

    Still kinda processing my relatively recent realization that Eurydice Hadestown never addresses Hades directly. Two and a half hour runtime. Half a dozen tracks where they share the stage. They have a wholeass duet. Not once. A quarter of her lines are about him. Her only solo is about him! Not once does she speak to his face.

    Hello Jellicoe Lodgers, I would like to present this song as the crux of the Orpheus & Eurydice—> Hadestown—>Sir Orfeo continuum

    #Singing! Farewell King of the broken! So long my friend! #I know how it started: the walls that we built to separate us they get wider and stronger! Heaviness is on me and I don’t see that we’ll be #whole again! #but I’m on the rise again! Set my sights on where I’m going and my goodbyes to where I’ve been! #we could always count on the same thing the ups and downs like time! We crawl through the abyss then #we came out!! Through the other side!! #heaviness is only temporary! (“So come Sir Orfeo out of his care!!”) #daylight will soon break in! The sunlight could change your HEART #AND THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN THE MYTH AND SIR ORFEO #MAN’S HEART CHANGED MAN’S LIFE CHANGED SO THE STORY HE TOLD CHANGED!! #the E U C A T A S T R O P H E #(was this written about this?? The build a wall for Hadestown? The farewell king of the broken?? Is this a modern day Sir Orfeo??) #jellicoe-lodge#Sir Orfeo#Youtube

    We Raise Our Cups is the last damn song and it fucking kills me every time. The somber warlike tone, the reminders of all that blooms and sings in the dark and cold, the fact that Persephone urges us to spill a drop for Orpheus. She toasts him like he did her in Livin It Up on Top.

    I love Amber Gray’s voice.

    Also, like, they just don’t know what happened to him. Orpheus canonically dies…right? Like in the mythos?

    inspired by @sealbatross’s post; pizza boy!orpheus au

    Orpheus works for a pizza place and Hermes, the boss, gets an order from the Underworld one day and Hermes is very confused, but he makes it anyway. He gets Orpheus to deliver the pizza, and Orpheus then proceeds to spend an hour trying to get past the hounds  Eventually, the orderer of the pizza shows up and wham, it’s Persephone, who was simply craving some Margherita pizza.  Behind her, though, is the prettiest girl Orpheus has ever seen; Eurydice. 

    And so begins this interpretation of Hadestown. Orpheus delivers pizza down to the Underworld once a day just to catch a glimpse of Eurydice, a hungry young girl who craves a slice of Hawaiian pizza

    It absolutely sucks the Hadestown crew felt Chant Reprise had to be shortened because they REALLY struck poetic gold with the broadway Persephone lines: “When I was a young girl like you, this old world was younger too. We set it spinning hand in hand, me and a young man” and “It was love that spun the world when I was a young girl!” The lost love between these two ancient deities being what caused the cycle of the seasons and thus the spinning of the earth is just SUCH a cool image and while I do understand cutting bits out to make the story tighter, it’s a bummer it had to lose some of the best lines because of it.

    #and it even ties back to Epic I when Hermes says that it was their love that made the world go round #ah well #I do think cutting seph's verse was a wise choice in terms of tightening the story but damn do i still miss it? #hell yeah you bet i do #hadestown#hadestown broadway#amber gray#anais mitchell#persephone#musicals

    Has this even happened to you guys?

    Having a playlist filled with songs from musicals is wild. One minute you are jamming to and motivated by something like Seize the Day, and then Something Bad is Happening comes on so you’re sad, but then Road to Hell comes on so you start to jam along, and then here comes Do you hear the people sing? so you get even more motivated and then comes Satisfied so you try to rap that and then OUT OF NOWHERE comes Waving Through a Window which you can’t help belting because it’s so relatable BUT WAIT I’ll Cover You (Reprise) comes on so you obviously cry and then woah wait a minute Defying Gravity is now on?!? and then here comes Love They Neighbor comes on so you start belting and oh nononononono You Gotta Die Sometime so it’s time to start crying but then here comes Santa Fe? And then Found/Tonight comes on so you get this sense of encouragement and then here comes Look Down for you to aggressively sing, followed by Seasons of Love, Watch What Happens, and then Sal Tlay Ka Siti so you’re all fine and dandy with the next few songs being pretty good ( Micheal in the Bathroom hits a little close to home ngl ) and then suddenly there’s Burn but wait On My Own comes next oh no it’s What Would I do? And at that point you’ve been such an emotional rollercoaster you reach to stop it but can’t help but let Falsettoland (Reprise) finish you off.

    Yeah….

    Also kudos to people who read all of that and who understood all of the song’s musicals without looking at the tags. I mentioned songs from a LOT of musicals I’m sorry wow.
