Once began as a music-fueled indie film that won the nation's heart in 2006, taking home the Best Original Song Oscar for its haunting love ballad "Falling Slowly." Now, Once has taken the Broadway stage by storm, earning eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The romantic tale follows a downtrodden Dublin street musician and a delightfully quirky Czech woman who meet in the least likely of places -- a vacuum cleaner repair shop. Their complicated lives make the path to love a rocky one, and they channel their feelings into the music they produce together -- him on guitar, her on piano, two voices harmonizing and setting them free, for a time, from the harsh realities of their lives.

It really surprised me! When I first got there I didnt know what to expect considering it was a small stage with no curtain. However, they made it work, and the acting was very good!!! :)
I had a great time! It wasnt sugar coated, and it was very real and full of emotion.
Ample street parking.

As all the reviews have said... outstanding show!
My cheeks hurt from laughing so hard.
A lot of traffic that night, and found parking, so I was late.
But, the people at the door were sooooooo accomodating..
Looking forward to their next...continued
The Idea Man takes us into that great gaping gulf between labor and management. In leaps Al, a sharp but underachieving line worker, who drops a suggestion in “the box” on how to improve the machine he’s tied to, which is so brilliant it could revolutionize the industry. His prize: a one hundred dollar check and a plaque. The corporate bosses see it as a win-win windfall. But Al’s got other ideas.
This biting commentary on class warfare by playwright Kevin King with award-winning director David Fofi at the helm will take you into the trenches, boardrooms, bedrooms, and barrooms of today’s industrial world where exploitation is a given.
