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.

Hansard and Irglová’s Oscar-winning music will take audiences on a heartbreakingly romantic journey.
