Tony Award-Winner ‘Once’
Runs at The Fox Theatre March 4-9

2014 March 1

The national tour of the Broadway musical “Once,” winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical and winner of the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, will play The Fox Theatre from March 4-9.

Featuring an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments onstage, “Once” is the story of a Dublin street musician who’s about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. As the chemistry between them grows, his music soars to powerful new heights… but their unlikely connection turns out to be deeper and more complex than your everyday romance.

About the Broadway production, The New York Times said: “‘Once’ features another rarity in a Broadway show: amplification that enhances rather than distorts the music. (Clive Goodwin is the sound designer.) When the violins begin to play in ‘Once’ — and the accordion and the mandolin and the guitars and the cello — the instruments swell into a collection of distinctive voices melded into a single, universal feeling. That’s the sense, carried in the corners of all human hearts, that we just missed out on the real thing. ‘Once’ massages that feeling until it hurts quite exquisitely.”

Ticket prices start at $30 and will be available at Fox Theatre box office, by visiting www.broadwayinatlanta.com or by calling 1-855- 285-8499.
