Performed by a talented cast of actor-musicians, the Tony-winning best musical, Once, tells the enchanting tale of a Dublin street musician and part-time vacuum repair-man, Guy. He is about to give up on his musical dream when a beautiful young Czech immigrant, Girl, takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. As the chemistry between them grows, Guy’s music soars to powerful new heights. When an opportunity arises in America for Guy, will Girl let him know how she truly feels?

"Mr. Greisler's staging and Misha Shields's choreography are woven together so tightly and imaginatively that you can't be sure at any given moment who did what."
