Once began as a music-fueled indie film that won hearts in 2006, taking home the Best Original Song Oscar for its haunting love ballad "Falling Slowly." Now, Once has taken the Broadway stage by storm, earning eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The romantic tale follows a downtrodden Dublin street musician and a delightfully quirky Czech woman who meet in the least likely of places -- a vacuum cleaner repair shop. Their complicated lives make the path to love a rocky one, and they channel their feelings into the music they produce together -- him on guitar, her on piano, two voices harmonizing and setting them free, for a time, from the harsh realities of their lives.

In less than five years, the show has brought a staggering 50 million people worldwide to their feet at sold out theaters, arenas and stadiums.
Michael Flatley, who originated the role of the Lord, serves as the artistic director and continues to oversee all aspects of the production. The first American to win the All-world Championship in Irish Dance, Flatley opened the show in Dublin in 1996 and is listed in The Guinness Book of World Records for having the world’s fastest feet: 35 taps per second.
Said Flatley. “We’ve combined traditional and modern forms of dance to create a high octane blend with soulful beats and feet that move too fast to comprehend.”
