ONCE – Reviewed by Stephen Radosh
ONCE, the Tony winning musical with a book by Enda Walsh and a score by Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova, is a total joy from the moment you enter the theatre until it lovingly sends you on your way home. In many ways, it is an unconventional Broadway musical. It has only one multi-location set, beautifully designed by Jimmy Cuomo and lit to perfection by Moira Wilkie. There are no big dance numbers or crowds of townsfolk rushing onstage for the second chorus of an over-the-top production number. But it works beautifully!
