Just when I was thinking I was going to have to stab my eyes out because another movie is being turned into another mediocre Broadway musical, something special comes along. For Once, the musical is worthy of the film that spawned it. This movie-musical has been seamlessly fashioned into a lovely, charming musical. The creators have found a workable balance of what might normally have been too many downer songs, added a lively comedic book, a few high-octane Irish step-dancing numbers, and a cast that won’t quit, and they have come up with a gem.
Once began life as a 2007 Irish film with music, written and directed by John Carney. It was then developed at American Repertory Theatre as a musical and was a hit last year at off-Broadway’s New York Theatre Workshop.
