oh man, how do I even begin to express my love for this incredible show and this amazing group of people.
I don't know if it's weird, that out of all the musicals and all the casts in the world, this is the one that's found a very special place in my heart, but the fact of the matter is, I am so so glad I happened to see it, because it is truly remarkable. The music and message of this show is resounding and the cast is just beyond words.
They are amazing and talented and every other positive word in the English dictionary you could possibly apply to a group of actors playing a show about love and humanity that I talk about so much my friends are tired of hearing about it. I can't thank them enough for the inspiration they've given me both simply by performing and by the incredibly kind words they've said to me.
Happy trails, and I can't wait to see what more amazing things you all do in the future. ❤️
so about last night.
this cast is incredible in every sense of the word. they're ridiculously talented, and so so kind as well—I wasn't sure who was more excited when we all met after the show, honestly. they were all so sweet and genuinely appreciative of my dumb drawings and I just cannot stop reliving last night and smiling until my face hurts. my mom keeps saying she's never seen me happier and honestly she's probably right.
I cannot thank these amazing people enough for the inspiration and sense of wonder they give me. if you're in the area PLEASE go see the show before it closes on the 30th, it is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.
thank you thank you thank you ❤️ #once#oncemusical#southcoastrepertory#scronce#raiseyourhopefulvoice#singyourmelody
Right in the middle of what has turned out to be a dream role another dream role begins. I can't imagine a better way to spend my birthday than to toil away with deep thanks to all those who have given me these opportunities. You likely know who you are, but I will happily spend the time between now and my next birthday giving you and my work my all so that you know how truly grateful I am. #scronce#singyourmelody#raiseyourhopefulvoice#billy#ofmiceandmen#lenniesmall#doubleduty @southcoastrep @northcoastrep
"Once" opened previews tonight to a standing ovation of a sold-out house. I feel like I won the lotto. It is an absolute privilege to tell this story with these talented, hilarious, good humans, and I get to do it for the rest of the month. Thanks to my fambam for coming from near and far last night and snapping this photo during pre-show. #imnotcryingyourecrying#nopewereallcrying#oncescr#singyourmelody @southcoastrep @nmongiardo @cassidystirtz
Here's a little promo from @latimes about #oncescr beginning previews Saturday! http://www.latimes.com/socal/daily-pilot/news/tn-wknd-et-scr-opening-20170824-story.html #singyourmelody#wevestillgottime
You never notice how time flies just like you never notice the little cherry hiding in the leaves under the sky. Mama Mia! and Hedwig finished their Broadway run these two days. Together with Once which closed in January this year, I watched these three in my separate three visits in NYC. Advertisements at Time Square changed every time I went to NYC. They are telling how fast the world is changing, how energetic a city can be. Whenever I see pics of Time Square and Broadway, they remind me not to stay in the peaceful autumn, and to go back. #singyourmelody#fall#ilovebroadway

As everyone knows, Once is my favorite musical and I am heartbroken that it is closing. I would just like to thank the past and current casts of @oncemusical for inspiring me to learn how to play they piano. I never enter contests, but I thought I'd do it for the chance to see this show's final performance. So, here is a clip of me singing and playing "The Hill". #SingYourMelody
I have loved the music of #Once since my high school acting teacher introduced it into my life in 2008.
The soundtrack was on repeat when I fell in love in 2010 and a couple months later, it helped heal a broken heart.
Before graduation last year, I shamelessly cried buckets during a broadway production with Darvill and Christie and cried each time someone from the cast walked out the stage door. Absolute magic.
Thank you for giving us such a gift and bringing to life this beautiful story, cast and crew of @oncethemusical. I have always loved you. Brava!
