Once is based on the 2006 Irish musical film of the same name, written and directed by John Carney.

Once has been brilliantly adapted from stage to screen by Enda Walsh and retains much of the film's original Grammy nominated soundtrack written by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, including the hit song Falling Slowly, which received a 2007 Accademy Award for Best Original Song.

Once opened on Broadway in February 2012, and went on to win an amazing eight awards at the 2012 Tony Awards ceremony. Among the plaudits were Best New Musical and Best Actor. The show also picked up the Drama League Award for distinguished production of a musical for 2011-2012.

It tells the story of an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant drawn together by their shared love of music. Over the course of one fateful week, their unexpected friendship and collaboration evolves into a powerful but complicated romance, heightened by the raw emotion of the songs they create together.

Brought to the stage by an award-winning team of visionary artists and featuring an ensemble cast of gifted actor/musicians, Once is a musical celebration of life and love: thrilling in its originality, daring in its honesty, and unforgettable in every way.
