The stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning film comes to Broadway.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Once is a small-scale but warmly affecting show, crafted with profound respect for the power of music. For anyone who feels that Broadway has become the domain of bloated spectacles and cynically overworked brands, this will be a refreshing artisanal tonic.’’
‘‘The show wins its standing ovations the old-fashioned way: with a love story, great songs, compelling characters and inventive stagecraft. ’’
‘‘What was always wonderful about Once, its songs and its staging, has been magnified. In the meantime its appealing stars, Steve Kazee and Cristin Milioti, have only grown in presence and dimensionality. Who would have thought that this soft-spoken little musical would have found itself by raising its voice? ’’
