Due To Popular Demand, ONCE Extends At Arden Theatre Company

Philadelphia audiences will have additional opportunities to enjoy the Irish-kissed musical sensation ONCE, playing at the Arden Theatre. The company announced today that performances of the Tony Award-winning show will be extended until October 28.

The Arden engagement, which has been featured on FOX29, CBS3, NBC10, and 6ABC, tells the 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 love songs.

Emotionally captivating and theatrically breathtaking, ONCE is an unforgettable story about going for your dreams, not living in fear, and the power of music to connect all of us.
