Once is actually a story that I really like.
I saw it first as a film a few years ago. It is a story of this irish song writer/ singer who is about to give it all up until he meets this foreign girl over a vacuum cleaner. Yes, you read it right.
It was a low budget movie produced in Dublin and it is as tacky as it sounds and it is adorable.
And about 2 years ago they made it into a musical – which was interesting because even though the movie is all about music and releasing an album and all that. They even had Ronan Keating playing. Bless him he really can’t act but he is a very good looking singer ahah!
The show is no longer in London (it was at the Phoenix Theatre) as it has gone home to Dublin and is now showing there. So if you are from Ireland, please go see. It’s is a heart warming story with loads of fun pun lines and irish music – they literally turn the stage into a bar before the act and during break!!!!
