Once Tickets Information
Once is a theatrical reincarnation of an Irish movie by the same name. The story of the play, just like the movie, revolves around a guy and a girl falling for each other through their mutual love for music. The guy in question is referred to as “Guy” in the play whereas the girl is referred to as “Girl.” The Guy is an Irish street musician whereas the Girl is a Czech immigrant. The Guy plays guitar locally in a bar and one day as he is about to leave after his performance the Girl, who is a single mother, comes to talk to him. A conversation between them ensues and it is discovered that all the songs that he has written are directed towards his former unfaithful girlfriend. The Girl is a piano player and that conversation eventually leads the two of them to play a song written by him. From that day onwards they team up to write, play and record song together which in turn helps the two of them get to know each other better.
One night they both go to a night club and the Guy plays there. The two of them then manage to convince a bank manager, who himself plays a guitar, to invest in his music. The manager becomes a member of their group. The Guy and the Girl have by then fallen in love with each other but neither have opened up about their feelings. The Guy records for a big record label and asks the girl to come to New York with him. When he eventually decides to confess about his feelings, the plot turns on its head that leads to a heartwarming ending to this sensational musical.
