"Magical from beginning to end," is how film critic Roger Ebert described the movie ONCE (2006). The low-budget independent film, shot in just seventeen days, went on to win an Oscar for "Best Original Song," along with dozens of other industry awards and nominations.
The storyline is simple, romantic, and propelled by music rather than diaologue - which made it perfect for readaptation as a Broadway musical. ONCE went on to win EIGHT 2012 Tony Awards, including "Best Musical."
