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.

The show is worth seeing as a work in progress. The cast is quite good, we all know and love the story.
The show needs about 18 weeks of an intense old-style pre-broadway tour. The kind where throughout the run songs get discarded / added, characters get re-focused, changes are made to the choreography, etc.
The shows biggest problem is that the score is absolutely generic and one-dimensional. There is very little variation in style / song type. (Everything sounds similar). A musical that partially has its roots in cinematic romanticism should use this fact as a musical guide post for some of its musical numbers -- the torch song, the comedy number, the romantic duet. the production number;
I wish Sleepless in Seattle all the best on its trek to the Great White Way. It's one-million times better thant Flashdance, the Musical.

I expected so much and was deeply disappointed. There wasn't one song - and remember this is a musical- that stuck in my mind because ALL the songs sounded the same. The cast tried, I am sure, to pull it all together but it just didn't come about....continued
