When an irish busker and a young Czech mother meet through a shared love of music, their songwriting sparks a deep connection and a tender, longing romance that neither of them could have expected.
Based on the much-loved Oscar-winning film, Once is an extraordinary, original and irresistibly joyous celebration of love, friendship and music. It won eight Tony Awards when it opened on Broadway in 2012, including Best Book and Best New Musical. It opened in Dublin in February 2013 before transferring to the West End.
