Do you remember how you meet that special someone in your life?
My husband and I recently attended “Once” on Broadway at the Aronoff. It was unlike any Broadway play I’ve ever seen before… in a good way. We were not that familiar with the plot of ONCE prior to the play but now I see why audiences LOVE it so much.
The set and costumes were minimal, which kept our focus on the characters. The music was absolutely incredible with songs that spoke from places of heartbreak and hope. I was excited to learn that the song “Falling Slowly” was from this play. I remember hearing it for the first time as a duet by two American Idol contestants several years ago. It’s such a beautiful song. You will definitely want the soundtrack after watching the play!
