His music needed one thing. Her.
Based on the much-loved Oscar-winning film, Once is an extraordinary, original and irresistibly joyous celebration of love, friendship and music. When an Irish busker and a young Czech mother meet through a shared love of music, their songwriting sparks a deep connection and a tender, longing romance that neither of them could have expected.
Winner of 8 Tony Awards in 2012, including Best New Musical, this unique stage adaptation takes you right to the heart of the action in a rapturous production that dazzles with invention.
An old-fashioned love story that dares to be different, Once is brought to life by a supremely talented cast of actor-musicians who unleash all the giddy exhilaration of an Irish ceilidh live on stage. Featuring all of the magical songs from the original film, including the Oscar-winning "Falling Slowly", this is an achingly beautiful, thrillingly inspirational show that strikes a truly unforgettable chord.
How often does a musical like this come around?
