The show was great but our seats were awful-3 rows from the back.
Evidently the Pantages doesn't have much respect for Goldstar or Red Velvet Members. I'm not sure I'll book seats there again.

I saw the original NYC run and have to say I liked this one even more. The leads played it much more raw and rocker than the more "Broadway" version in NYC. I also thought they had much better chemistry. The choreography was a miss for me, but the...continued

We had a lovely experience at the Pantages for "Once"! I thought I'd be more critical being a fan of the film & of The Swell Season, but the musicians/ artists were so talented, and it was done so well. Make sure to get there early if you want...continued

It was our first time seeing this musical and so we didn't know what to expect. What came next was a pleasant surprise. The cast was superb. Guy and Girl were fantastic (after listening to the original cast online I can say that these two on the...continued

Lovely show, lots of humor, character-rich and filled with gorgeous musical moments. I'm a Red Velvet member and I had a third row aisle seat which was much appreciated.

The music was beautiful, and I was so impressed with each member of the cast! They could sing, act, play their instrument(s), and make it all look effortless.

What a tremendous group of talented musicians and actors! I enjoyed every minute of it! And the Pantages is such an amazing venue and a big part of Hollywood legend...you have to go!

I was in line for the restroom when the lights flickered to signal that the show was about to start. I got to my seat in good time and then I got confused. People were on stage milling around drinking and musicians were singing and playing on...continued

Our Red Velvet seats were great, 2nd row mezanine. I enjoyed the music but it was difficult at times to understand the words the actors were saying or singing. Overall it was interesting and enjoyable.

Incredibly talented cast and the main song from the movie is great, in fact all the music is pretty great. The show itself is a bit slow, it could have been picked up a bit but, this wasn't the cast's fault, obviously a directorial choice. I...continued

Once was magical! The acting, the singing, the staging, everything was beyond my wildest expectations. Our seats were third row center of the mezzanine. Perfect. We only wish we had seen in earlier in the run, so that we could go back again.

A sweet and romantic story with wonderful vocals and musicians. Allowing audience members on stage before the play for a pre-show jam and during intermission added to the fun.

As usual our seats were great, Goldstar never fails us. the play was a disappointment, very slow and dull, however the audience seemed to really enjoy it. My friends didn't like it at all. We'd seen the movie and all agreed that it didn't...continued

The story is very thin. I am surprised it ever made it to the stage and even more surprised that it won the Tony for Best Musical. Hearing the music live was wonderful and the voices and players are very talented. Like it.

I had seen Once in NYC and love it. The Pantages was a whole different experience. Way too big of a venue.

loved the show and the production. However, the Pantages theater is too too big for this musical. Sit as close to the stage as you can.

It was a great musical. I haven't seen the movie, but now I want to. The music was great. However, be forewarned, it is not your typically musical with lots of flash, but it has a great story line with really, really good music.
