ONCE to Play at Madach Theater


ONCE to Play at Madach Theater Hungary will be falling slowly in love with Once as it opens at Madach Theater Sept. 20 and 21.

From the very first note, Once draws you in and never lets go. This emotionally captivating musical is the only show to have music that won an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, an Olivier Award and a Tony Award.

On the streets of Dublin, an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant are drawn together by their shared love of music. Over the course of one fateful week, an unexpected friendship and collaboration quickly evolves into a powerful but complicated love story, underscored by emotionally charged music.

Featuring all of the magical 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. A show like that only comes around Once.

Once features a book by Enda Walsh, and music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova.

The musical's cast features: Dolhai Attila and Green Csaba as "Tad," Gubik Petra, Simon Boglarka and Kathy Tompos as "Girl," Attila Barat and Sandor Lorincz as "Billy," Attila Magyar and David Sandor as "Branch Head," Adrienn Feher and Monika Safar as "Baruska," Viktor Bekefi and Bernadett Szemeredi as "Reza," Csuha Lajos and Istvan Fillar as "Father," Daniel Borsanyi and Laszlo Santa as "Svec," Gergo Krausz and Zoltan Mezo as "Andrej," Timea Balog and Dorothy Petho as "Ex-Girlfriend," Brandy Mark and David Scheich as "Anchorman" and Arpad Nemedi and Ferenc Torma as "Eamon."
