There are plenty of romantic Broadway musicals. But "Once," the gorgeously crafted and intensely moving new show that opened on Broadway on Sunday night after a seamless transition from downtown to the main stem, is part of a much smaller and more rarefied group: musicals that are actually wise — even when that means being counterintuitive — about the joys and anguish of life and love, and that send the viewer's mind spinning with ideas, feelings and maybe even a few changes in personal priorities. "Once" does all that. Several times over.

- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

The new Broadway musical “Once” doesn’t have a swinging chandelier, tap-dancing showgirls or brand-name stars. There’s only one set — and it doesn’t levitate. The show wins its standing ovations the old-fashioned way: with a love story, great songs, compelling characters and inventive stagecraft.... Guy’s songs have “heart and soul,” Girl tells him. She might as well be describing this gem of a show. 

- Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post

Cristin Milioti brings new meaning to worn out adjectives such as "gamine" and "pixyish" as the enigmatic Girl. With a deadly deadpan and a sweet smile, she delivers sarcastic zingers like a charming assassin one minute, and the next she's a lost little waif playing heartstrings as easily as she does the piano. She is matched perfectly with Steve Kazee, who imparts the bruises and batterings of Guy's ruined romance in a voice so raw and strong it wounds. When they get together, the spark between them charges through the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre like electricity. At their parting, my heart broke along with theirs.

- David Sheward, Backstage
