    10 Reasons to See Once, The Musical

    This spring, the Fulton transports you to Ireland for an evening of music, connection, and love. Here are 10 reasons to see Once, The Musical, at the Fulton Theatre:

     

    On-Stage Orchestra

    The Fulton always impresses us with the amazing musicians they bring in to fill their pit orchestra. This show, however, is a little different. All of the actors in the show are creating the music that scores their performance. Not only do they play, act, and sing, you will also see a dance step or two.

     

    Pre-Show Jam

    Enjoy a live Irish jam before the show even begins! Find your seats early so you can hear as much as you can.

     

    Movie Adaptation

    The show was originally adapted from the acclaimed musical film, Once, that premiered back in 2007, written and directed by John Carney.

    Unique Music

    It’s unexpected that a musical soundtrack sounds like it came straight out of a coffee shop. The music and lyrics are by folk artists Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová who originally starred in the film version of Once, The Musical. Their unique sound makes this show very special.

     

    Heartwarming Story

    You will leave the theatre feeling all of the feels after this show ends. The raw emotion in the cast’s performance is something that you will not find anywhere else.

     

    Falling Slowly

    The most popular song in this show is what put Once, The Musical, on the map. Hearing it live will make you want to download it and listen over and over again.

    Cheapest Plane Ticket Ireland

    Once, The Musical will transport you straight to Dublin, Ireland for a few hours. This round trip ticket to Ireland is the cheapest one out there.

     

    A Lesson in Humanity

    In this story, the characters put aside their own struggles to help someone in need. You can feel their love for one another in the music.
