Presented by: Darlinghurst Theatre Company

This achingly beautiful smash-hit folk musical strikes an unforgettable chord

After a sell-out 2019 season, our breathtaking production of Once returns to make you fall in love all over again.

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. Featuring an outstanding ensemble of performers playing instrumentals live on stage, Once is a modern-day musical that reminds us of the power of music to connect us all.

With songs from the critically-acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning song Falling Slowly, this spellbinding score will have you holding your breath from beginning to end.

“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

“Caccamo is an extraordinary vocalist, full of gorgeous yearning, and she’s well-matched by Francis, who could sing Apple’s endless Terms and Conditions and make it sound profound.” – TimeOut ★★★★

“Led by Carroll, who brings just the right light touch to his direction, everything in the production (choreography, music, lighting, design) combines organically to create something heartfelt, bittersweet, and very special.” – Limelight Magazine ★★★★1/2

“Once succeeds, rather than suffers, from how personal and specific it is. It makes you remember musical theatre can be better than it inevitably is.” – Daily Review ★★★★
