Well the Missus and I trundled down to the theater district last night to catch the New York Theatre Workshop production of Once, and say, it was swell.
Even though we sat in the nosebleed section of the banged-out Opera House, we were captivated by the music, the staging, and the acting in the local production. It’s sweet, bittersweet, romantic, and authentic all at the same time.
Dani de Wall (Girl) and Stuart Ward (Guy) are fabulous, and Evan Harrington’s Billy is a hoot.
It’s one of those rare productions that actually deserved what seem to be mandatory standing ovations nowadays. (It runs through January 19.)
There were lots of Once (the film) groupies there last night. We’re guessing twice was just fine with them.
