The Barbara Broccoli and Michael G.Wilson produced smash-hit Broadway sensation and winner of 8 Tony Awards opens at the Phoenix Theatre in London. Previews available from March 16, 2013.

Based on the much-loved 2006 Oscar-winning film, Once is an extraordinary, original and irresistibly joyous celebration of love, friendship and music.

When an Irish busker and a young Czech girl meet through a shared love of music, their songwriting sparks a deep connection and a tender, longing romance that neither of them could have expected. The unique stage adaptation (Best New Musical at the 2012 Tony Awards) takes you right to the heart of the action in a rapturous production that dazzles with invention.

An old-fashioned love story that dares to be different, Once is brought to life by a supremely talented cast of actor-musicians who unleash all the giddy exhilaration of an Irish ceilidh live on stage. Featuring all of the magical songs from the original film, including the Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly”, this is an achingly beautiful, thrillingly inspirational show that strikes a truly unforgettable chord. How often does a musical like this come around...
