Theater: Once

Winner of eight Tony Awards, Once is a truly original theatrical experience. Based on the hit movie and featuring an ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments on stage, Once tells the enchanting story of a Dublin street musician who is about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. A musical collaboration becomes much more as their songs and lives become intertwined. Hansard and Irglová's Oscar-winning music will take audiences on a heartbreakingly romantic journey.

Sounds Good: Music Themed Movies: AKA Doc Pomus

What do Dion & the Belmont's hit, "A teenager In Love;" Bob Dylan's rocker "Boogie Woogie Country Girl;" Andy Williams' "Can't Get Used to Losing You;" "Up on the Roof" and "This Magic Moment" by the Drifters; "Suspicion" (and "Viva Las Vegas," "Little Sister" and "I Feel Like I've Known You Forever") performed by Elvis Presley; Joe Turner's "Chains of Love;" Ray Charles' "(There Is Always) One More Time;" B.B. King's signature song "There Must Be a Better World Somewhere;" Jimmy Scott's "Someone to Watch Over Me;" and the Drifters' "Save the Last Dance for Me" all have in common?? All these songs and an unbelievably rich additional catalog of hits were all written by one man - Jerome Felder.
Born into a Jewish family in Brooklyn and disabled by childhood polio, Felder idolised soul music and r&b and re-invented himself as Doc Pomus, becoming one of the most influential song writers for black and white singers over two decades. He mentored and sheltered other writers and his admirers include Lou Reed (who narrates this documentary) as well as Dr. John, Joe Turner, Joan Osburne, Shawn Colvin and Ben E. King, all of whom appear in the film. i>aka Doc Pomus (1995)
