Based on the Motion Picture written and directed by John Carney

A guy, a girl and the song that brought them together.

Winner of eight Tony Awards® in 2012, including Best Musical, ONCE tells the unforgettable story of a Dublin street musician and a funny Czech woman, drawn together by their shared love of music. As they assemble a band from her wild family and his quirky mates, the music flows and they fall slowly in love.

From the producers of Made in Dagenham, an ensemble of actor-musicians ‎play their instruments live on stage, in a smash hit romantic show that steals your heart, based on the Academy Award-winning film.

ONCE‎ is about what happens when you take chances and go for your dreams.

Performed by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) Ltd.
