On Stage Tuesday: "Once"

   The Marshall Artist's Series wraps up its latest season this week with the touring Broadway show Once (which is based on a terrific movie by the same name).

   My pal Dave Lavender filed an excellent story in today's Herald-Dispatch, which you can read right here - here's an excerpt:


   Florida native Sam Cieri has been everything from a motorcycle salesman in New York to a dueling piano player at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
   But oddly enough it was his time busking with his guitar in the NYC subways that prepared him most for his role of Guy in the Broadway tour of Once, which closes out the Marshall Artists Series' 2015-16 season.
   The winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical and winner of the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album when it was on Broadway, Once, will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center, 925 4th Ave., Huntington.
ABOUT THE SHOW: Once, based on the 2007 award-winning indie movie, tells the tale of a Dublin street musician who's about to give up on his dream when a young woman takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. As the chemistry between them grows, his music soars to powerful new heights ... but their unlikely connection turns out to be deeper and more complex than your everyday romance.
