Betty Who made her Broadway debut in the Tony-winning musical Hadestown September 5 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. On that same day, Tony nominee Boykin (The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess) also joined the cast.
Directed by Rachel Chavkin, Hadestown also stars original cast member and Grammy winner Reeve Carney as Orpheus, Solea Pfeiffer as Eurydice, and Tony winner Lillias White as Hermes. They are joined by Amelia Cormack, Lindsey Hailes, and Brit West as The Fates. The Workers chorus is played by Emily Afton, Malcolm Armwood, Alex Lugo, Sayo Oni, Alex Puette, and Grace Yoo. The cast also includes swings Brandon Cameron, Max Kumangai, Yael "YaYa" Reich, Eddie Noel Rodríguez, and Allysa Shorte.

Singer-songwriter Anaïs 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.
