See It More Than Once- Once Musical Review

Today I ventured back into the world of musical theater to see Once, The Musical.

It is based on the 2006 movie of the same name.

In one eventful week, a musician who believes that his dream is dead meets a woman who by the end of the week, sees the beauty and the potential of his music. Their love is mutual, but life may tear them apart.

I did not have the opportunity to see the original cast, but the more recent cast with Arthur Darvill and Joanna Christie.

It’s not the typical musical, which makes it stand out among the cornicopia of musicals currently on Broadway. It is also un-typical is the audience is allowed to walk up to the stage and order from the bar. Most shows have a fourth wall, which is only broken after the show. Before the show starts, while the actors are warming up on stage, the audience is allowed to walk on stage and order from the bar, as well as going up during the intermission.

What I enjoyed was unorthodox and informal staging of the show and un-Hollywood ending.

I would definitly see it again.
