Patrick Page’s cowboy-boot-wearing Hades steals the show with gruff charisma and a gravelly voice reminiscent of Tom Waits.

Financial Times

Enter Hades, played with an air both sinister and suave by Patrick Page. Mr. Page’s charcoal baritone seductively wraps itself around Ms. Mitchell’s songs as he hymns the comforts that await Eurydice down below, and mocks Orpheus’s promises

The impossibly deep, bass-voiced Page, wearing a black suit and sunglasses, is deliciously sinister as Hades

With his bottomless bass, Page embodies the ruler of the underworld to perfection.

The Wrap

One of the great stage villains of our era, Page is magnificent as the authoritarian plutocrat. He exudes power with his confident gait and resonant bass, shielding his eyes from the flames of hell with a very cool pair of sunglasses.


And Page, whose slow-burn intensity makes Hades scarier than if he spouted flames with every ultra-low note—in which case, the theater would have burned down after the first preview.

Talkin’ Broadway

Patrick Page (Hades) and Amber Gray (Persephone) handily bring the King and Queen of Hadestown to electrifying heights with remarkable performances and stunning vocals. Mr. Page’s range is astonishing and his low notes must be heard to be believed.

On stage

As excellent as they all are, the real casting coup might be Broadway veteran Patrick Page, who commands the stage with his basso voice and glint of humor as Hades.
