Guy meets Girl in this tender love story about a struggling Irish musician on the verge of giving up, and a piano-playing Czech immigrant who reminds him how to dream. Featuring an ensemble of performers playing their instruments live on stage, ONCE is an achingly beautiful show that strikes an unforgettable chord in audiences and speaks to the power of music to connect us all.
