    A Love Affair With Music, Maybe With Each Other

    Ben Brantley

    December 7, 2011: Charm is fragile. What’s enchanting in one context, subjected to stress, exaggeration or self-consciousness, can seem soppy or strident in another.

    Once

    Steven Suskin

    December 6, 2011: Once is not enough: "Once" is that rare kind of musical which theater lovers will want to see again. The 2007 independent film from Ireland -- made for about $150,000, with a worldwide gross of $20 million -- has been creatively expanded and adapted for the stage, and it works out impeccably. Songwriters Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova (who starred together in the movie) have joined playwright Enda Walsh and the "Black Watch" team of director John Tiffany and choreographer Steven Hoggett to create a rhapsodic, unique stage musical. Machinations for a quick Broadway transfer are underway, with strong prospects.

    'Once' Musical Headed To Broadway

    Jocelyn Noveck

    December 6, 2011: Once upon a time, they made a little indie movie for $150,000 about an Irish street musician and a Czech flower-seller in Dublin. Its breezy, improvisational feel, pleasing folk-pop songs and melancholy romance touched the hearts of countless fans, and it raked in $20 million.

    Once

    Robert Feldberg

    December 6, 2011: "Once" is a pop-music fairy tale, a very slight, but sweet and sometimes charming show about young almost-love. The musical, which opened Tuesday night at the New York Theatre Workshop, is an adaptation of the 2006 film of the same name, about the meeting in Dublin and subsequent collaboration of an Irish street musician and a Czech woman.
