Saw it this past Saturday. Loved it. Felt privileged to have experienced it. The
two leads are sensational but the whole ensemble is world-class. If you've
seen the movie (a sweet, beautiful, modern fractured fairy tale), then the
F-bombs would be no surprise. Didn't bother me.
This a play for adults. The movie had absolutely no gratuitous vulgarities or
language. It was a very beautifully written story that depicted the typical
relationships of everyday people... as most everyday people use colorful
language from time to time . Thank you DN for sharing the info of
this play... and thank you PTC for bringing such beautiful artistic pieces to
Thanks DN and PTC. Looks like an interesting production... until
you read the content advisory on the PTC website: Numerous f-bombs, along with
multiple other vulgarities and obscenities.I think I'll pass on
the filthy language. That's not art, it's nothing more than shock
value and the continued efforts on the part of so-called art purveyors to dumb
down their productions to the most base level and to normalize offensive
language, including for our children. A direct quote from the
content advisory: " 'Once' is a gentle musical suitable for all
audiences..." Granted the content advisory gives warning about the
language, but does the language really add to the production and is it really
necessary? I think not. And I think I'll pass and not bother to find out.
Plenty of wholesome entertainment elsewhere. And please don't
shred me for being offended by filthy language. It represents the disrespect
that is pervasive in society. Filthy language abounds in the public square,
including areas where families and children are present and sure to hear.
Frankly, that's disrespectful on multiple levels.PTC et al,
I'll take my entertainment business elsewhere.
