National Broadway Tour of Once

Winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, Once (based on the 2007 film) is an original Broadway experience. Featuring an impressive ensemble of actors who play their own instruments onstage, Once tells the enchanting tale of a Dublin street musician and a Czech flower seller who meet and fall in love. Their unlikely connection becomes deeper and more complex than an everyday romance. Emotionally captivating and theatrically breathtaking, Once is an unforgettable story about fearlessness and the power of music to connect us.
