Dublin, mid 2000s. An Irish busker meets a young Czech woman and in five days they discover the healing power of music together. In this soft-spoken story of romance, cultural and musical chemistry, the cast sing and play their own instruments for all the songs, including the Oscar-winning Falling Slowly from the indie film Once.
ONCE is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www mtishows.com
