Theater Musical - Once

 I took myself to Bass Hall in Fort Worth on Saturday, and treated myself to an orchestra seat to enjoy the musical "Once".  It was originally a movie created by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. A boy and a girl meet - he's Irish, she's Czech and they bond over music for a brief period of time. But once is the spark that changes their lives. It's a nice little love story about chance, dreams, and two cultures.
 Excellent cast and voices. These photos are courtesy of an email from Bass Hall. No photography during the performance!
The musicians were superb and the song "Falling Slowly" is sublime. It won an Academy Award, and it's haunting. If a touring production of "Once" arrives in your town, treat yourself to a ticket and two hours of magic.


  1. This sounds like fun. I love musical theater.

  2. I love musical theatre too. Sounds like a good one.

  3. Sounds like a production I'd really like to see.

  4. Hello greetings and good wishes.

    Interesting commentary about an excellent musical production. Sounds fantastic.

    Recently I saw a Hindi movie TWO STATES in which two people from different states in India fall in love. They speak different languages,follow different customs etc. Both the in laws create too many problems for the lovers to get married. However, in the end the lovers convince their parents and get married.

    Best wishes

  5. The Bass Hall is always wonderful to visit for shows.

  6. I'm glad you enjoyed the play! It's always a treat to see a good musical!
