At first, Once appears quite the opposite to your usual musical production. The setting is very minimal, the cast is small and quite often the actors double-up on characters. Nevertheless, this musical is a beautifully-crafted love story enlightened with a stunning musical score. The artists...More

Music is the highlight but the cast and story were just great. The stage setting is unique but you just get so enthralled in the story that you just notice the space around the actors; it was a feeling I'd never experienced before. The storyline...More

We saw the musical "Once" at The Princess Theatre in Melbourne. Although you can often see similar things repeated time and time again in theatre, this is not the case with Once. The presentation is very creative and for me, it is very original. The...More

It will make you Laugh and make you cry. The Australian production of "Once the Musical" is wonderful and the leads Tom Parsons and Madeline Jones I thought were wonderful in their roles as Guy and Girl. I saw Once on Broadway last year and...More

I'm very torn in writing this review. I loved the concept of the show to which I don't want to spoil. The cast were very talented and I loved the songs. Unfortunately I didn't believe the leads had strong enough voices. In saying that I...More

Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
