The smash hit ONCE makes its Centre debut in 2016

The smash hit musical ONCE is making its Kitchener debut on April 14, 2016. This truly original Broadway experience features an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments on stage. Eight time Tony Award winner, 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. 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.

The musical is based on the 2007 Academy Award-winning film ONCE. The musical stays true to the movie and at the same time presents a truly unique presentation of the story. ONCE features the Academy Award-winning music and lyrics of Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová also used in the original movie.

“Once uses song & dance in a way I’ve never experienced in an American musical”. – The New York Times
 

“Once in a blue moon, perhaps one in a decade or so, a new Broadway musical breaks the rules, challenges expectations and delights audiences with something they didn’t realize they were longing for. Once is that musical.” – The Columbus Dispatch

This hot, new Broadway is here for only one night. Make sure you get your tickets before they’re all gone.
