ONCE: THE MUSICAL


Kiwi singer-songwriter Lisa Crawley makes her musical theatre debut in the internationally acclaimed new Broadway musical ONCE which will capture the spirit of a gloriously gritty Irish pub from June 27 at the ASB Waterfront Theatre. This exhilarating almost-love story is the only show on Broadway to have music that won the Academy Award®, Grammy Award®, Olivier Award and Tony Award® - making it one of the most celebrated modern musicals in the world.

Set in modern-day Dublin, this is the story of a Dublin busker who gave up on his music – and his love – and the Czech musician who inspires him to dream again. In the space of a week their lives will change forever, as they take a gamble on this thing called life. It’s an “invisible” love story about change and identity, jumping across borders and barriers.
