Solea Pfeiffer, who made her Broadway debut last season in the new musical Almost Famous, will join the cast of the Tony-winning Hadestown next month.

Pfeiffer, who can currently be seen in the Free Shakespeare in the Park production of Hamlet, will succeed Tony nominee Eva Noblezada as Eurydice beginning August 15 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. In other Hadestown news, Tony winner Lillias White has extended her run as Hermes through February 4, 2024.

Pfeiffer, also seen in the title role of the City Center gala presentation of Evita, says, “I am so beyond thrilled to be back on Broadway joining this beautiful show and incredible company. I fell in love with Hadestown and Eva’s Eurydice years ago, and it is a great honor to follow my friend who I have such immense love and respect for. I have truly loved this score and the magical world Anaïs Mitchell and Rachel Chavkin created from the first time I saw the show, and I cannot wait to go to Hadestown every night. What an absolute gift.”

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.
