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 Mitchells” tells the story of a young man who is confronted with having to disclose to his ostensibly conservative parents that he is gay before he is outed on a national Diane Sawyer television special. The full-length play is based on Smith’s “Christmas with the Mitchells,” a one-act that was part of Playwrights 6’s “Christmastime is Queer,” staged in 2002 at the Celebration Theatre in Hollywood. The critically acclaimed one-act was a finalist in the 2003 GLAAD L.A. Outstanding Theatre Awards.
The full-length “Mitchells” was named a finalist in the 2005 New Play Contest at Theatre Conspiracy in Fort Myers, Fla. and a semi-finalist in the 2004 Ashland (Ore.) New Plays Festival.
“The Mitchells” is directed by Jonathan Levit, who also directed “Christmas with the Mitchells.” In the cast are Larrs Jackson, Morris Nash, Lisa Robert, Peter James Smith, Amy Tofte, Jamie Virostko and Greg Wolf.
