BWW Reviews: The Orpheum Thinks ONCE Is Not EnoughBWW Reviews: The Orpheum Thinks ONCE Is Not Enough
by Joseph Baker - Oct 29, 2014

Despite the fact that I am a great lover of cinema, the film version of ONCE (2006) somehow eluded me; now, the musical stage adaptation, with music by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova and a book by Enda Walsh, is affording Memphians an 'off season' 'pub crawl' at the historic Orpheum Theatre - and though I have never been particularly fond of Irish whimsy (Barry Fitzgerald's coy old priest in GOING MY WAY is probably the source of that), and though PBS repeats of performances of clarion-voiced Irish lasses sawing away at violins and Riverdancers send me reaching for the remote, I am happy to report that . . . I finally 'get it.' ONCE is a refreshingly 'laid back' vehicle for a musical; its often wistful, incisive, perceptive numbers are an intimate alternative to the often overblown showstoppers of larger musicals.

BWW Recap: Progress Made on This Week's PARENTHOODBWW Recap: Progress Made on This Week's PARENTHOOD
by Matt Smith - Oct 17, 2014

This season of PARENTHOOD has been definitely packed with enough drama, and the writers are brilliantly beginning to close up storylines while offering us new ones to keep us busy and immersed enough in the show that presumably we forget that it's ending in, like, December/January. It's a smart move, though as you'll see below, I think the new plot lines in the final episodes of the season not to mention the season's shortened 13-episode run, which this week drops us down to just 9 (single digits, people!) will seem a bit rushed given the time length.

BWW Reviews: ONCE Upon A TimeBWW Reviews: ONCE Upon A Time
by Finny (Amanda Finn) - Oct 8, 2014

A Broadway show to end the notion that every tale is a fairytale, though the title of this article would allude otherwise, Once finds its power in all things realistic rather than in a storybook romance. It takes the age old understanding that when a man and woman find each other everything else will work out and flips it on its head. While Hollywood and its cohorts would love for the public to believe that every story has a clear cut path, Once provides insight into what audience members already know. After all, the great Victorian playwright Oscar Wilde Once penned, 'the truth is rarely pure and never simple.' Once merely reiterates the fact. (more...)

BWW Reviews: ONCE - The Best Australia Has SeenBWW Reviews: ONCE - The Best Australia Has Seen
by Tim Carney - Oct 8, 2014

Once, the musical adaptation of the film by the same name is quite possibly the most complete display of craftsmanship and creativity in modern theatre. This coupled with its stunning book by Edna Walsh and equally exquisite score by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova provide for an evening at the theatre unlike any other. (more...)

BWW Reviews: ONCE at the HippodromeBWW Reviews: ONCE at the Hippodrome
by Tina Saratsiotis - Sep 19, 2014

For Baltimore theater goers, a show at the Hippodrome is a must-see experience. The ornate charm of this historical gem sets an anticipatory air of excitement for the audience. It's proven to be versatile in its staging of both new and old Broadway whether elaborate or intimate. The most recent production, ONCE, is a successful example of the Hippodrome's ability to stretch and contract its personality to fit the style of a small indie movie as well as any elaborate Disney extravaganza.
