I never saw the film Once. For whatever reason, I never saw it. I heard about it and I heard the music but it just never happened. And then the film was made into a musical which is now on Broadway. I finally decided to see it even before the show won the Tony for best musical and best actor in a musical. I think it was during my breakfast with Mike and Scott that I was finally convinced to see it.
Trish and I saw it Thursday night and I loved it. I loved the music and the quirky characters. It is not a big spectacular show. It is a beautiful story that comes to life through the really great music and actors.
I also liked the stage set. It's an actual bar that people can order drinks at during intermission.
And the theater is gorgeous. I am often impressed by the ceilings of the buildings in NYC.
