Musical: Once more with a warm musical embrace
Once by Enda Walsh (music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová). Gaiety Theatre, Dublin, until March 9. Rating: 4/5. Reviewed by Andrew Lynch.
Once is a musical that wants to give everyone in the theatre a great big hug. Even before the show has started, audience members are invited up on stage for a pint and impromptu session with the cast. From then on, our heartstrings are pulled so relentlessly that some of the actors themselves were blinking back tears at the curtain call.
