April 10 – May 19, 2019
Winner of eight Tony Awards and a truly original theatrical experience, Once transports audiences to Dublin, where a struggling street musician meets a beautiful young woman who is captivated by his haunting love songs. With unforgettable melodies and an incredible ensemble of actor-musicians, Once speaks to the power of music to connect us all. Hansard and Irglová’s Oscar-winning music will take audiences on a heartbreakingly romantic journey.
