Once is a funny, moving and life-affirming love story with glorious music that has captured hearts around the world. Seeing it where it all began, at home in Dublin, is very special. Based on the movie sensation of the same name, filmed and set in Dublin, it features music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova and a Tony award-winning book by Enda Walsh. The show has all the magical songs from the much-loved film, including the Oscar-winning Falling Slowly.
Once has something unique to offer you. Come early and enjoy Dublin’s only on-stage bar! Where else can you walk onto the set and buy a drink on stage. It’s a ‘once’ in a lifetime experience!
The Olympia is only a short stroll to Dame Street from San Lorenzo’s, so you can relax to a pre-Theatre Early Bird and still be at the Olympia in plenty of time for a beer on the stage!
