Absorbing, Riveting, Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you love folk music, great staging, energetic and engaging performers, joyful theatre and heartfelt storytelling. A wonderful delight!

Don't see it if you don't like joyful music and performances or a romantic story of young unrequited love and great acting.

Sad, Romantic, Great music, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if you’ve ever felt you missed your destiny and want to have a good cry about it. But also, the music and performances are raw and beautiful.

Don't see it if you need a lot of action and big, flashy numbers. This is a slowly paced, intimate, and soulful show.

Edgy, Intelligent, Great singing, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if you would enjoy a mostly young, talented cast on a well-appointed set, every actor also a musician, with good choreography, well directed.

Don't see it if you do not like slow musicals with music that you will not be humming. It is not an upbeat musical.

Dated, Exquisite

See it if into boy-meets-girl, with a loose plot and many unrelated Irish-ish songs. A large cast of good actors/musicians, lovingly done.

Don't see it if well... the original film was magical, but that was when the concept was fresh. This "Once" is exquisite, but too often cutesy or forced.

Thought-provoking, Delightful, Great writing, Great singing, Great acting

See it if You like movie or book, and you like songs. Great story about immigration. Cozy theater.

Don't see it if Don’t like small theaters, you want to see a Broadway show. You want to see something light. It covers tough topic.
