Now in its 23rd summer residency at Dartmouth, the New York Theatre Workshop brings established and emerging theater artists to Hanover to present readings of six new works-in-progress—including a theatrical version of singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell’s song cycle Hadestown, based on the Greek myth of the musician Orpheus and his love, Eurydice.
