Last night, Brad and I had the opportunity to go see Once. All I can say is that if you ever get the chance to see it, go!
Since the cast is also the musicians, we arrived twenty minutes for the show only to see them warming up on stage--in character--with Irish drinking songs. It only got cooler from there. It is a perfect blend of funny and heart-warming and heart-breaking. The music is incredible--all the more so because you see them playing the instruments. Magic. Pure magic. I was in tears multiple times, often just out of sheer awe.
And...we had a two hour delay this morning, so life is even better.
