This Tony-winning gem of a musical took Broadway by storm with its romantic folk-rock ballads and an ensemble that plays its own instruments. 

Set in contemporary Dublin, a street guitarist is about to give up on his dreams when he meets a curious woman who wants to know all about him. 

Captivated by her optimism, the two embark on a remarkable music-making journey that includes a cadre of unlikely companions -- immigrants, oddballs, and lonely hearts.

Featuring all of the magical songs from the acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning "Falling Slowly," this achingly beautiful, joyously uplifting show performed by some of the most talented actor/musicians in the area now memorably and intimately re-staged by THE WILBURY THEATRE GROUP"ONCE" strikes an unforgettable chord in audiences and speaks to the power of music to connect us all
