Guy meets Girl, in the musical that stole Broadway’s heart.

Book by Enda Walsh | Music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová.
Based on the motion picture written and directed by John Carney

From the very first note, Once draws you in by the heart strings and never lets go. This emotionally captivating musical is the only Broadway show to have music that’s won the Academy Award, Grammy Award, Olivier Award and Tony Award.

Set in modern day Dublin, 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. This exhilarating musical is performed by an extraordinary ensemble of actor-musicians. With 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.

A show like this only comes around Once.


  • Original and unforgettable, Once draws you in from the very first note, grabs you by the heart strings and never lets go. - New York Daily News
  • When the violins begin to play – and the accordion and the mandolin and the guitars and the cello – the instruments swell into a collection of distinctive voices melded into a single, universal feeling… Once massages that feeling until it hurts quite exquisitely. - The New York Times
