Based on the much-loved Oscar-winning film, ONCE is a celebration of love, friendship and music. When an Irish busker and a young Czech mother meet through a shared love of music, their song writing sparks a deep connection and a tender, longing romance that neither of them could have expected.
The London production of ONCE stars Declan Bennett (Guy) until 8 March 2013, and Zrinka Cvitešic (Girl). Arthur Darvill will take over as 'Guy' from 17 March 2014, reprising the role he played in the Broadway production.

It was also named Best Musical by the New York Drama Critics Circle, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critic Circle and Lucille Lortel Awards.
The 2007 Academy Award® winning film ONCE was written and directed by John Carney, starring Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová who also composed the original music and lyrics.
