Despite the crazy flooding weather, the Tony and Grammy winning Hadestown experienced their first performance back with an audience last night!! Prior before tonight’s official re-opening, the Broadway company held a special INVITED DRESS REHEARSAL performance for family, friends, and industry. The highlighted moment was at the very end. Get your tissues out before watching this.
Following the curtain call, the show’s legendary Tony winning standout cast member André De Shields (who plays “Hermes”) surprised the audience with a special rendition of Kander and Ebb’s legendary theme from NEW YORK, NEW YORK. The cast and standing audience at the Walter Kerr Theatre all sung along.
