Winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards including Best Musical, ONCE, The Musical is adapted from the Academy Award-winning movie about a heartbroken Irish guitarist who has given up on love and music until an immigrant girl inspires him to keep going. Their shared love of music draws the two together and the unexpected friendship quickly evolves into a powerful but complicated love story.
ONCE, The Musical, based on the motion picture written and directed by John Carney, features a book by Enda Walsh, and music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová. The production also features songs by Fergus O’Farrell, Martin Lowe, Andy Taylor and Enda Walsh. Music is orchestrated by Martin Lowe.
The production features a company of actor/musicians who will play their own instruments. Also, The Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, which features an elaborate pneumatic system making it one of the most technically advanced theatres in the world, will be transformed to an in-the-round configuration, to create an intimate setting unique for this production.
Tickets start at $25.00
