How was your experience?
I took my wife to see the musical ONCE for her birthday. The music was great (in the opening pub scene they actors/musicians play some great Irish tunes after which the wonderful original score tunes begin). The staging was minimalistic and very creative. Interesting and definitely cost effective having the musicians double as actors. The players seemed very adept at both. We both loved ONCE and would recommend it to anyone and especially to those who enjoy Celtic music.
