Based on John Carney's 2007 film of the same name, Once is multi-award-winning Broadway musical. Much like the film, the musical contains music and lyrics written by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, including the Academy Award-winning "Falling Slowly", and follows a thirty-something Dublin busker (known simply as “Guy”) and a young Czech woman (“Girl”) in a tale of love, music and the magic that can happen when you take a chance… Premiering at the New York Theatre Workshop in 2011, before transferring to Broadway in 2012, the musical received eleven 2012 Tony Award nominations, and won eight including Best Musical, Best Actor and Best Book (the book was written by Irish playwright Enda Walsh). It also won the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical and the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
