The 2012 Tony Award winner for best musical, "Once," will make you fall in love with the story of an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant who connect over their shared passion for music on the streets of Dublin. Over the course of one fateful week, an unexpected friendship and collaboration quickly evolves into a powerful but complicated romance, accentuated by the inviting, empotional score that earned an Academy Award, Grammy Award, Olivier Award and a Tony Award. Featuring all the original songs 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.
Based on the motion picture written and directed by John Carney, the book for the stage production was written by Edna Walsh, with music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.
