Once- a beautiful musical

Once Denver

Last night Jason and I went to see Once, a show I had never heard of, which isn't surprising since there are so many that I haven't. I had heard of the movie, but I didn't know there was a musical. I was torn about seeing it, to be honest, I just didn't know if it was worth using a babysitter to go.

The layout makes it so that everyone can see every part of the show, and it really makes it feel like you are a part of the … [Read more...]
