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.

9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker dining • Dec 20 2013 star this tip starred

I enjoyed the evening with my husband. This group sure sticks along the same lines that goes with the name of their group. I prepared myself for some heavy and raw stuff, nevertheless some of it was hard to listen to (i.e. the language and lewdness). The lady singer was awesome! the best out of the four. But really all of them were very talanted. I admire their introspection of certain topics. I am still glad I went.

Awesome event. Fusion theatre rocks my world! The weak link is the guy called Ninja, but Mildred Ruiz's voice is so amazing and strong, she can do blues or Latin music. Steven and Gamal were great spoken word poets. I definitely recommend...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“… as likely to kick some poetry as break out into a capella singing, to orchestrate a vocal exercise as they are to burst into a step show… Their energy and realness is unmatchable.” —The Village Voice
Last seen in Los Angeles with Slanguage, the multitalented artists of Universes return to the city with Live from the Edge, an evening that showcases the ensemble’s special brand of fusion theater. The group breaks the bounds of traditional theater to create their own brand of performance, blending poetry, theater, jazz, hip-hop, politics, down-home blues and Spanish boleros to create vibrant and thrilling theatrical pieces. _
Live from the Edge_ is a “best of” evening that tracks the evolution of the group’s poetic language—from childhood rhymes and community rituals to poetry, theater, hip-hop and gospel. A truly unique performance event that turns the poem into a communal act, Universes is redefining what theater is and who it speaks to.
