Review: ONCE at CVRep

Back in 2007 a little Searchlight film called Once entered my world with a big bang. Although it was not the first Irish musical film about unknown musicians (The Commitments was my first) it made a big impact on me in the same way Everything Everywhere All At Once did - it felt like a new genre of film and instantly became a favorite of mine. Especially the song Falling Slowly, which everyone seems to know. Not so much? The film. When I expressed my excitement over seeing the musical I was hella surprised to learn that most everyone I knew did not know this film.

Photos: MR. BURNS, A POST-ELECTRIC PLAY at Theatre Wit

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play, currently enjoying a successful run at Chicago’s Theater Wit, will close on November 14, making way for Wit’s new holiday offering, Who’s Holiday!, which starts previews on November 26.

It’s not just fitting that MR. BURNS is a play about a post-apocalyptic world, but also one that deeply underscores why art is so important to humanity. Indeed, this production demonstrates that art is what makes us human and empowers us to survive. After such a long time without live theater here in Chicago, I can think of few better ideas to ponder than that.
