NOTE: AUDIO DESCRIPTION CANCELLED DUT TO SEVERE WINTER WEATHER!  Once is a truly original Broadway experience, featuring an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments onstage. A struggling Dublin street musician is 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. Their unlikely connection turns out to be deeper and more complex than your everyday romance. Emotionally captivating and theatrically breathtaking, Once draws you in from the very first note and never lets go. It’s an unforgettable story about going for your dreams, not living in fear, and the power of music to connect all of us. With music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, including the award winning "Falling Slowly," the production received eleven 2012 Tony Award nominations, and won eight including Best Musical, Best Actor and Best Book. The musical also won the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical, and the 2013 Grammy Award for Best musical Theater Album.
