I bought the OBCR once (
) it was realeased but didn't make it past 3rd or 4th song, 'cause I found the songs quite boring and thus decided to skip this show.
As I was looking for a Thursday matinee and as Once were offering most of the Stalls seats at a reduced rate, I nevertheless gave it a try last Thursday and luckily I did.
Once is stunnigly beautiful, touching, funny and sad altogether. Extremely talented cast. Songs work really well on stage and I was stoked seeing all the cast playing their own intruments. However, I still think the OBCR doesn't do the show justice and you have to experience it live on stage.
Really enjoyed it and will definitely be back. I already recommended the show to some (Norwegian ?) Girls who were also dayseating at Wicked on Friday morning.
