On the streets of Dublin, a woeful Irish musician and a captivating young Czech woman are drawn together by their shared love of music. Over the course of one fateful week, an unexpected friendship and collaboration quickly evolve into a powerful but complicated romance, underscored by emotionally-charged music, played by the very actors themselves! Winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards® including Best Musical, ONCE is a truly original theatrical experience. The music of ONCE has won an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, an Olivier Award and a Tony Award®. Featuring all of the breathtaking music from the critically-acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly,” this achingly-beautiful, joyously-uplifting show strikes an unforgettable chord in audiences and speaks to the power of music to connect us all. A show like that only comes around ONCE.
