**** Highly Recommended **** “Once” is a unique story about two people brought together for a very short amount of time by their love of music. It’s sweet – but definitely not saccharine – poignant, funny, and full of fabulous music. You just can’t resist the magic! Paramount Theatre’s production of “Once” is an absolute must-see. I loved the music of “Once” so much that I bought the soundtrack. By the way, I think the Paramount production might just be better than the national tour! 4 BIG Spotlights
