Based on the popular Oscar-winning film, new musical Once sees an Irish busker and a young Czech mother meet through a shared passion for music which sparks a deep connection that develops into a tender romance.
Once has transferred from Broadway where it won eight Tony Awards in 2012, including Best Musical.
This stage adaptation features all of the magical songs from the 2006 Irish movie, including Falling Slowly. Members of the cast never leave the stage; they play instruments when they're not in a scene.
Once will run on the West End until 21 March, 2015, when it will embark on a European Tour.
