Once  
The Hanover Theatre Once
 
Once began as a music-fueled indie film that won the nation's heart in 2006, taking home the Best Original Song Oscar for its haunting love ballad "Falling Slowly." Next, it took the Broadway stage by storm, earning eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. Now presented at the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts in Worcester, the romantic tale follows a downtrodden Dublin street musician and a delightfully quirky Czech woman who meet-cute in the least likely of places: a vacuum cleaner repair shop. Their complicated lives make the path to love a rocky one, and they channel their feelings into the music they produce together -- him on guitar, her on piano, two voices harmonizing and setting them free, for a time, from the harsh realities of their lives.
