Photo Flash: First Look At Actors' Playhouse At The Miracle Theatre's Production Of ONCE

Audiences are raving about Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre's South Florida regional premiere production of ONCE. Performances began on Wednesday, February 28 and will run through Sunday, March 25. Get a first look at the show in photos below!

Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, ONCE is a truly original Broadway experience. Featuring an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments onstage, ONCE tells the enchanting tale of a Dublin street musician who's about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his music. Emotionally captivating and theatrically breathtaking, ONCE draws you in from the very first note and never lets go. It's an unforgettable story about going for your dreams and the power of music to connect us all.

Directed by David Arisco, the production stars Ben Hope, who made his 2012 Broadway debut in ONCE, as Guy.
