My friend and I loved the show. It was unusual choreography and beautiful music. We saw it with the understudy for "Girl," and she was excellent.

Quotes & Highlights

  • Once uses song and dance in a way I’ve never experienced in an American musical. When the violins begin to play — and the accordion and the mandolin and the guitars and the cello — the instruments swell into a collection of distinctive voices melded into a single, universal feeling. Once massages that feeling until it hurts quite exquisitely.”—The New York Times
  • “A gem of a show. Once wins its standing ovations the old-fashioned way: with a love story, great songs, compelling characters and inventive stagecraft. at this point in Broadway history, this feels downright revolutionary.”—New York Post
  • “One of the best things to happen to Broadway in the past decade. An exquisite reminder of theater’s singular capacity to transport us.”—The Hollywood Reporter
