The heart-breaking smash-hit musical, Once again, by popular demand!

Book by Edna Walsh
Music & Lyrics by Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová

In 2019, Darlinghurst Theatre Company’s production of Once tugged on Wollongong’s heart strings and never let go. In 2021, this captivating, life-affirming musical is set to reimmerse audiences in the irresistible musicality of Dublin.

The only show on Broadway to have music that won the Academy Award®, Grammy Award®, Olivier Award and Tony Award®, 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.

Performed by an extraordinary ensemble of actor-musicians and featuring the spell-binding songs from the critically-acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning ‘Falling Slowly’, this achingly beautiful, joyously uplifting show strikes an unforgettable chord, speaking to the power of music to connect us all.
