Doors Open 1 hour prior to show. Once is an All Ages Venue.
ONCE Ballroom, 156 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA

ONCE Ballroom becomes the New York City home and loft space of this tribe of artists, performers, believers and misfits who find each other during the tumultuous social climate of the late 1960s. The audience becomes the lens for their stories as they hang out, get high and plan a Be-In protest against the draft and the Vietnam War.

Under the direction of original BRO founder, Eleanor Ramsay and the musical direction of Clinton Degan (Body English), the tribe and audience will be taken on a trip through time and space through the eyes of its main character, Berger, played by Rodrigo van Stoli (Aquanutz). Joshua Rajman plays the tragic Claude Bukowski and Kat Bondi (Alchemilla) is the yippie protester Sheila.
