Ani DiFranco made her Broadway debut this past weekend as Persephone in Hadestown alongside co-star Lola Tung!
"DiFranco’s history with Hadestown began in 2010 when she invited Anaïs Mitchell to release the original studio album of Hadestown on DiFranco's label, Righteous Babe Records. DiFranco originated the role of ‘Persephone’ on the album, leaving an indelible imprint on the character as the show evolved over the course of several years.
DiFranco commented, “I could not be more thrilled to be joining the cast of Hadestown. It’s like I get to rewind to my New York youth and follow the road not taken.” - Hadestown.
Ani plays the role of Persephone through June 30th.
