Once is undoubtedly one of the most cleverly staged, superbly choreographed yet touchingly intimate musicals I have yet seen. The ceilidh style opening which demands the audience to be sitting down well before the start is a superb idea and totally fools the audience the cast are excellent musicians/singers/actors. True triple threat stuff. Once is ALMOST as good as The Last Five Years at the Factory of Chocolate. Almost. What worries me is that it won't get the support it deserves from priggish and greyed theatre critics or stupid "see poster - see show" tourists. If I had some money to help it along I would donate. Seriously. Put the Mormon book back on the justifiably dusty shelf and take a chance - just ONCE.
