What's On

Once
 

Book by Enda Walsh
Music & Lyrics by Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová
Based on the Motion Picture Written and Directed by John Carney 

Guy meets Girl in this smash-hit Broadway musical. 

Once is a tender love story of a struggling Irish musician on the verge of giving up and a piano-playing Czech immigrant who reminds him how to dream. 

Featuring an outstanding ensemble of performers playing instrumentals live on stage. Once is a modern-day musical that reminds us of the power of music to connect us all.

With songs from the critically-acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning song Falling Slowly, this spell-binding score will have you holding your breath from beginning to end.


By arrangement with Music Theatre International (Australasia).

 

"When the violins begin to play – and the accordion and the mandolin and the guitars and the cello – the instruments swell into a collection of distinctive voices melded into a single, universal feeling… Once massages that feeling until it hurts quite exquisitely.
The New York Times

Original and unforgettable, Once draws you in from the very first note, grabs you by the heart strings and never lets go.
