Hadestown Postponed Until September

Omicron says "To Hell with your schedules, puny humans!"

Disappointed? We're right there with you, citizen: We, too, were looking forward to seeing the popular Broadway in Austin musical Hadestown, originally scheduled to run at Bass Concert Hall, Jan. 11-16.

But you know that many things are up in the air right now, and – to extend the metaphor a bit – some of those things contain a viral load. And so the January performances have been canceled.

Good news: The show is rescheduled to run at the Bass in September.

Here's the official statement from Texas Performing Arts on behalf of Hadestown:

We regret to share that, due to breakthrough positive COVID cases within the company of Hadestown, next week's engagement at Bass Concert Hall has been rescheduled. Hadestown will now play Bass Concert Hall September 20-25, 2022.

Patrons do not need to take any action at this time as their seats remain secure. Tickets for the January dates will be honored for the new performance dates. Details will be sent to ticketholders via email.

Patrons who have transferred or resold tickets for Hadestown bear the responsibility to share the information with the ticketholder attending the show.

OK, though. If Heaven can wait, as the saying goes, then Hell can, too. In the meantime, we're wishing a full and speedy recovery to those cast and crew members affected by this stupid pathogen … and queueing up something almost as Hadestown-level enjoyable on Netflix.

Note: Y'all be safe out there!
