Once is the winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and is the stage adaption of the film by the same name, which won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Falling Slowly.” And this Broadway hit is coming to Philly.
An impressive cast of actors play their own instruments on a minimally-designed stage and showcase the famous music and lyrics of Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová. Once tells the story of a Dublin street musician, known only as “Guy,” who is losing hope for success until a young woman notices his songs and approaches him. The chemistry is palpable as the two grow closer, a relationship mirrored in Guy’s new soaring musical numbers. Don’t miss your chance to see this highly-acclaimed and emotionally moving drama that challenges viewers to chase their dreams and see music’s power to connect others.
