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 Academy Award for Best Original Song.
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.
