GO FOR THE MUSIC

I loved the sweet, simple story and the emotion- packed music. If you're looking for a big production, this is not it. It's much more intimate than a lot of Broadway plays. We were in the top row of the Mezzanine and it was hard for me to hear the dialogue. I am a little hard of hearing anyway and did get the hearing device after the intermission. Much better. The only thing I didn't like was the choreography. I found the arm movements and some of the dances a little strange. But the music alone is worth every penny.

GREAT SHOW , RUDE STAGE MANAGER

My husband and I went to see Once over the weekend. We loved the music and the entire performance. Unfortunately, the part that left a bad taste in my mouth was how rude the woman that was on the stage, telling people where to stand in line to get their drinks was to everyone. She spoke to us all in a nasty tone and treated us all like we were idiots. The woman behind me even commented by saying " I thought this was supposed to be fun" . Leaving the stage after realizing that it was cash bar, my husband quickly pulled out cash for me and the rude woman yelled" make up your mind. Get on or off the stage!" . Not a way to treat anyone! Just a bad experience at a great show.

NOT MY CUP OF TEA

I guess I shouldn't rate this show because I missed half the dialog. The accents made it very hard to understand and the lead actress didn't face the audience when speaking. After seeing Phantom and Wicked this was a major disappointment. One set, no costuming. Music was good, but I prefer a razzle dazzle production.
