Winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards including Best Musical, ONCE is a truly original Broadway experience. Featuring an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments onstage, ONCE tells the enchanting tale of a Dublin street musician who’s about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. As the chemistry between them grows, his music soars to powerful new heights… but their unlikely connection turns out to be deeper and more complex than your everyday romance.

ONCE is a love story, but it doesn’t go past a PG-13 rating. There is a smattering of four-letter words and some mild sexual innuendo, but other than that it’s pretty clean. Kids will dig the communal feel of the piece, and the joy these actor-musicians clearly feel playing together is infectious for people of all ages.
