Once began as a music-fueled indie film that won the nation's heart 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.

Deena Selenow, Paul Fraser and Genevieve Gearhart’s Katastrofi is a musical cliff’s note to Sophocles’ gut-wrenching tragedy The Women of Trachis, sung through the lens of deconstructed musical themes inspired by Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River.” A merging of ancient and modern pop, Katastrofi puts two classics side by side in a dementedly playful retelling of Sophocles’ cautionary story of love, betrayal and good intentions gone awry. **
**Inspired by the story of Anne Frank and the strength of those hiding with her in the Annex, Winter Dance Theater’s The Day I Met Anne Frank takes the audience on a compassionate journey of dance, theater and song.
