Once

When: Tue., March 3, Tuesdays-Thursdays, Sundays, 7:30 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through March 8 2015

Based on the Irish film of the same name, Once follows a down-and-out Dublin musician and a kooky Czech girl who inspires a new kind of song. With his ex-girlfriend and her husband looming overhead, the pair yearns for what can never be. Their complex romance unfolds through a series of haunting songs performed by the ensemble cast against a minimalist set. Once’s soundtrack is undeniably what sets the love story apart. In the words of The New York Times’ Ben Brantley, “the songs soar with rough-edged, sweet-and-sad ambivalence that is seldom visited in contemporary American musicals.”
