I worked with a man of English heritage a few years ago, who is well versed in the theater. He is married to a lovely Irish woman, who went with him to see Once when it opened on Broadway.
The next day at work I asked, “How was Once? I bet it was amazing.”
He replied with this two sentence review: “It’s Irish. It was depressing.”
It wasn’t the review I was expecting, but it made me laugh.
