Once is a musical about an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant drawn together by their shared love of music.


Over the course of a week in Dublin, their unexpected friendship and collaboration evolve into a powerful but complicated romance, heightened by the emotional vulnerability expressed in their songs.

The story is set against a musical backdrop that is both hauntingly beautiful and starkly realistic.

The musical captures the challenges of love, the pursuit of dreams, and the power of music to connect and transform.

Once is celebrated for its minimalist staging, intimate storytelling, and the unique way it integrates music directly into the narrative, with the cast also serving as the orchestra.
