The music attracted them together, but it was the heart and soul of their lyrics that made them fall in love. Based on the Academy Award winning film, Once is the story of an incredibly gifted Irish musician playing his music in the streets of Dublin. He catches the interest of a lovely Czech girl, who plays piano. After teaching her one of his songs, they realize that they have a strong musical connection. Within a course of a week, they share their romantic troubles and strife through the music they sing to each other. Therein lies the constant romantic tension that makes the songs they sing full of emotion and passion, which is the heart and enchantment of Once.
Feel what it’s like to fall in love again through the characters of Once on Broadway. It’s the type of musical that rekindles emotions like no other Broadway show ticket can deliver. Musically charged by the Oscar winning song “Falling Slowly”, it’s just one of the many musical numbers in Once that will stick with you long way after the musical has closed the curtain. From the comical "Broken Hearted Hoover Fixer Sucker Guy” to the strong duet performance and soul of songs like “When Your Mind’s Made Up”, the chemistry between the two characters is razor sharp and when their voices unite the beauty of their love blossoms as they share their most raw sentiments. So, get engrossed by a full cast of actors/musicians in a story of two broken hearts that find each other through the love of music with a piano and tattered guitar.
