We continue our "Once is not enough" video series with this sampling of ONCE's 16-strong actor-musician cast in glorious all-playing, all-singing action onstage at the Queen's Theatre, Hornchurch. (You can still win tickets to see them all live in our competition by 6 March.)
Based on the critically acclaimed and much-loved film, ONCE - based on the cult 2007 Irish indie feature, originally shot on a micro-budget of just $160,000 - tells the uplifting yet yearning story of two lost souls - a Dublin street busker and a Czech musician - who unexpectedly fall in love. Following their relationship across five short days, big changes happen to both of them in little ways.
On this first major UK tour of ONCE, the 16-strong actor-musician cast is led by Daniel Healy as Guy and Emma Lucia as Girl, who return to the roles after receiving plaudits in the production’s 2018 premiere at the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich and Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch.
