Once is a spectacular theatrical masterpiece of epic proportions and the most beautiful storytelling imaginable. The talent of this cast is an overwhelming ensemble and the collective performance is one sensational moment after another. I would compare the calibre of this piece of theatre to the work of Theatre de Complicite and being a part of this audience was one of the most joyous nights in the theatre I have ever had. Poignant, funny, subtly nuanced and technically superb. This play has everything you could want, phenomenal casting, direction, acting, musical talent and storytelling that you can’t keep your eyes off. Put simply Once is 'perfect’ and a not to be missed experience representative of an audience that leapt to their feet in appreciation of what will undoubtedly be this year’s theatrical highlight. Tickets are almost sold out so be sure to get in quick as you do not want to miss this one.
