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.

boring, shallow stories in both sides, both were very clean and like in a party, only dry martini was not there.....the writter sometimes pretend why there is war and sometimes just do not care....the sroty really need to be improved....the whole package was fake, and actually no emotions in any sides.

The role of Ali by Bobby Naderi was delivered extraordinarily awesome, seamless and organic. The role of Bill by David Bennett needs work, too much screaming and yelling without emotion. He looked too groomed to be in a jail cell.

In modern day Iraq, two soldiers, an American and an Iraqi, find themselves in adjacent cells in a Baghdad prison. Alone and confused about how they got there, they explore their situation, share their stories, and learn about one another and what led them to this place in their lives. While their co-existence is far from simple, and while they find themselves relying on each other for survival, they begin to realize that they have a lot more in common than what their separate worlds have led them to believe.
