An exhilarating love story that refuses to play by the rules, performed by an extraordinary cast of actor-musicians, Once dazzles with invention, wit and unforgettable music.

Featuring all of the magical songs from the original film, including the Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly”, this achingly beautiful, thrillingly inspirational show strikes an unforgettable chord and truly dares to be different. How often does a musical like this come around...




Declan Bennet - Guy


Declan Bennett is a singer songwriter who writes candid pop music for a generation steeped in therapy and conversation. His penchant for sharing deeply honest tales of love and sexuality have won him a diverse and devoted fan base across the UK and America, arousing a relentless desire to listen to his unashamed, engaging lyrics again and again. No stranger to the stage (with mainstream chart success by the age of 20, a lead role in the award-winning pop biography ‘Taboo’ at 21, and an extended trip to America to star as Roger in the cult rock opera Rent), Declan released his second full-length album An Innocent Evening Of Drinking in April 2008. He went on to open for Boy George on his 31 date UK tour, widening his ever expanding audience of listeners and soon after was asked to return to the States to join the original cast of Green Day’s American Idiot on Broadway. Last summer he also starred alongside singer/songwriter Nellie McKay in his first feature film Downtown Express and his most recent music video for his song ’Freer’ won Most Moving Video at the RightOut Video Music Awards. His 3rd album ‘record:BREAKUP’, is out now.
