"Be plays Eurydice and related to her pragmatism, though like Orpheus, she still believes that if she can do something beautiful enough, she can make change."
"when someone breaks the rules and when they do it well, people will want to know how. Not to mention the timelessness of what is being told: values, status, social-political justice, love. If we were to put Orpheus and Eurydice in today’s secular world, their home might as well be a Syria and Hadestown might as well be a Europe."
“Daunno and Be are sexy and sweet as the ill-fated young lovers"
"Ms. Be’s Eurydice has a luminous beauty that makes Orpheus’s quick fall quite believable, and her singing is equally spellbinding. She also imbues the character with a transparent innocence that makes Eurydice’s susceptibility to doubt and seduction palpably believable.”
