Beyond the Stage: We Sent Staffers to Spy on ONCE!
ONCE The Musical is opening at the Orpheum Theatre tomorrow, October 28th. Over the past several weeks, we've noticed that the same question keeps popping up from our patrons: "I get it, it looks great... but what is it?"
Well, in a nutshell, ONCE is about a Dublin street musician who's ready to throw in the towel when a young woman takes an interest in his haunting songs and inspires him to keep writing. As the chemistry between them grows, so does their music! Throw in a delightfully eccentric band and a talented cast (which, incidentally, is also the orchestra), and you've got a formula for performance you'll never forget.
Still, we know you want to hear about the show from someone who's actually seen it! So we sent a couple of Orpheum staff members, Christina and Lauren, to check out ONCE before it came to Memphis. Now these lucky ladies are back to report their findings. Check out the video above to hear what they had to say!
