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 Czech girl 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, and a 2013 Grammy® Award, this unique stage adaptation takes you right to the heart of the action in a rapturous production.

An exhilarating love story that refuses to play by the rules, performed by an extraordinary cast of actor-musicians, Once dazzles with invention, wit and unforgettable music.

Featuring all of the magical songs from the original film, including the Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly”, this achingly beautiful, thrillingly inspirational show strikes an unforgettable chord and truly dares to be different. How often does a musical like this come around...
