Maia Reficco will join the Tony Award-winning musical “Hadestown.” Reficco will step into the lead role of Eurydice beginning on July 2 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Reficco will succeed Isa Briones, who will play her final performance on June 30.

“Hadestown” will mark Reficco’s Main Stem debut. She currently stars as Noa Oliver in the Max coming-of-age drama series “Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin.” Reficco also played the title role in the Nickelodeon Latin America series “Kally’s Mashup.” Onstage, Reficco took on the role of Young Eva Perón in New York City Center’s 2019 staging of “Evita.” 

“I am so elated to be joining the cast of ‘Hadestown!’” Reficco said in a statement. “Growing up in Argentina as the daughter of a musical theater director, my passion for theater was ignited at a young age. I would listen to any score and try to see any show I could. I first saw ‘Hadestown’ in 2019 with the original cast and instantly fell in love with the production. It was awe-inspiring how the company brought the story to life, and Eva Noblezada, she literally made Eurydice a dream role for me. I am overwhelmed and honored that now this dream is coming true. I cannot wait to be a part of a show that left such an impression on me and hope we can continue to do the same for others.”

In addition to Isa Briones, the current principal cast of “Hadestown” includes Jordan Fisher as Orpheus, Phillip Boykin as Hades, Ani DiFranco as Persephone and Jon Jon Briones as Hermes, the latter two of whom will exit the production on June 30; replacements will be announced.

Featuring a Tony Award-nominated book and a Tony-winning score by Anaïs Mitchell, “Hadestown” is an adaptation of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. The Rachel Chavkin-helmed musical opened on April 17, 2019, and was nominated for 14 Tony Awards, winning eight, including Best Musical and a win for Chavkin.

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