Today I saw Once starring Arthur Darvill with my friend Kristen
It was one of the most spontaneous things I have ever done. We found out about it on Monday and decided that we wanted to go, since I live in the city she stayed over and we woke up at 4 am to rush tickets (got box seats!). Not until I woke up did I realize (as a whovian) that today was See the Silence Day. So we decided that when we met Arthur we were going to ask him to draw a tally mark on our arm. He laughed and said it was no problem. He is such a sweetheart.
We were lucky enough that not to many people know he is in the show so we were able to talk to him. I told him that this was the first time he made me cry (because the story was so beautiful) and it wasn’t because he died. He laughed and said “Well there you go! It’s a step in the right direction”. I was also able to give him an awesome picture I took when he was in NYC filming last year.
Now I just wanna talk about the show. I AM SO HAPPY I SAW IT! Everyone was amazing, the story line and actors the music. The lyrics were the most beautiful words, and coming out of Arthur’s voice was just an added bonus! I recommend that you go see it! Whether arthur is in it or not, whether it is on broadway or off! GO! NOW!
Tonight was surly amazing!
