Hadestown fans will have only a few more weeks to go "way down under the ground" with Tony nominee Eva Noblezada. The Hadestown original cast member will play her final performance as Eurydice in Anaïs Mitchell's Tony-winning Hadestown August 13 at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

Noblezada began playing the role in 2018 at London’s National Theatre before transferring with the production to Broadway in 2019. She subsequently received a Tony nomination for her performance. Noblezada was previously Tony-nominated for her work as Kim in the 2017 revival of Miss Saigon.

In a statement, Michell says, “Eva’s Eurydice is/was everything–punk rock, tender, mythic. She seems to throw sparks all over the stage. She can do literally anything (and she will!), and I’m forever grateful she chose to spend so much time in Hadestown. We love you, Eva!”

Adds Noblezada, “I could’ve never dreamed of the extent of how much my life would be radically blessed by this epic love song of a show. As heartbreaking as it feels to leave, I am comforted by the gloriously infinite memories this show has given me, and I know I can look back whenever and be serenaded by them. There will always be endless love when I think of all the people who were/are part of the adventure. The casts! Crew members and our creative team. Our producers and company management. Family. And especially the tens of thousands of people who support Hadestown and hold the show in their hearts just like we do. Through all iterations, this show will always be about love and rebirth. Muchas Gracias. Salamat. Thank you all so much. Peace out!”

Noblezada's successor will be announced at a later date. After Noblezada's departure, Reeve Carney (who plays Orpheus) and Jewelle Blackman (as Persephone) will be the remaining original cast members.

Directed by Rachel Chavkin, Hadestown also currently stars Tony winner Lillias White as Hermes and Tom Hewitt as Hades. They are joined by Amelia Cormack, Lindsey Hailes, and Brit West as the Fates. The chorus of Workers is played by Emily Afton, Malcolm Armwood, Alex Lugo, Sayo Oni, Alex Puette, and Grace Yoo. The also cast includes swings Brandon Cameron, Max Kumangai, Yael "YaYa" Reich, Eddie Noel Rodríguez, and Allysa Shorte.

Singer-songwriter Mitchell’s folk- and jazz-infused musical layers the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice with that of Hades and Persephone, intertwining the actions—and consequences—of gods and mortals. Hadestown originally began as a theatrical concert performed by Mitchell.

The creative team features Tony-winning set designer Rachel Hauck, Tony-nominated costume designer Michael Krass, Tony-winning lighting designer Bradley King, Tony-winning sound designers Nevin Steinberg and Jessica Paz, choreographer David Neumann, and dramaturg Ken Cerniglia. Musical supervision and vocal arrangements are by Liam Robinson, with arrangements and orchestrations by Tony winners Michael Chorney and Todd Sickafoose.
