Eva Noblezada will play her final performance in “Hadestown” on Aug. 13. Replacement casting has not yet been announced.

Noblezada, who originated the role of Eurydice on Broadway, began with the musical’s London production at the National Theatre in 2018. She then transferred with the musical to the Main Stem in 2019. Noblezada went on to earn a Tony Award nomination for her performance and received a Grammy Award for the cast album.

“I could’ve never dreamed of the extent of how much my life would be radically blessed by this epic love song of a show,” Noblezada said in a statement. “As heartbreaking as it feels to leave, I am comforted by the gloriously infinite memories this show has given me and I know I can look back whenever and be serenaded by them.

“There will always be endless love when I think of all the people who were/are part of the adventure,” she continued. “The casts! Crew members and our creative team. Our producers and company management. Family. And especially the tens of thousands of people who support ‘Hadestown’ and hold the show in their hearts just like we do. Through all iterations, this show will always be about love and rebirth. Muchas Gracias. Salamat. Thank you all so much. Peace out!”

Directed by Rachel Chavkin and written by Anaïs Mitchell, “Hadestown” won eight 2019 Tonys, including Best Musical.

“Hadestown” is produced on Broadway by Mara Isaacs, Dale Franzen, Hunter Arnold and Tom Kirdahy.
