Out actor Levi Kreiss goes to ‘Hades’ RICH LOPEZ | Staff Writerrich@dallasvoice.com One of the first things Levi Kreiss said for this interview was that he has “a long history with the Dallas Voice.” This is telling about the actor and singer — not only that he has a good memory, but that he reminds himself of the road it took to where he is now. “You guys were there when I was part of that out-music movement at the time with Eric Himan and Ari Gold and others,” he said.

That was in the early aughts. Now, he’s gone from indie queer music artist to a Tony-Award-winning actor and on tour with Hadestown which opened in Dallas Tuesday at the Winspear Opera House as part of the Dallas Summer Musicals.

Winner of eight 2019 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Hadestown centers on the mythology of Orpheus and Eurydice and the relationship between King Hades and his wife Persephone.
