Once: The Musical, based on the movie of the same name which was released in 2007, is a folk-rock musical featuring original songs by the songwriting duo of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova that made its first Broadway appearance in 2012. It went on that year to win eleven Tony awards, including the awards for Best Musical and Best Actor, and even won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. Since its initial roaring success, the musical has gone on to birth a London-based production and a touring production across the continental United States. Once follows the story of a heartbroken busker in the Irish city of Dublin who meets a young woman with whom he bonds over their shared love of music. The musical is unique in that its cast also serves as the orchestra- all instrumentation is provided by the actors onstage live during the scenes. Another attribute of all productions of the play so far is the minimal stage design, featuring only a few pieces of furniture and set pieces. Once is the inspiring story of how love and music can change lives, and has been enthralling audiences since its still very recent debut. Don't miss your chance to buy cheap tickets to this incredible new phenomenon.
