On April 28 2016, some of the cast of the smash-hit stage show ONCE gathered in Walton’s Music store to announce details of the 2016 summer run at the Olympia Theatre. They were joined by writer/director John Carney (Once, Begin Again, Sing Street) who came by to say hello and reminisced about filming some of the ‘Once’ movie in Walton’s Music store 10 years earlier.
Huge thanks to Walton’s Music store for hosting us and to John Carney for dropping in to say hello!
ONCE returns to the Olympia Theatre, Dublin for 8 weeks only in summer 2016 https://oncemusical.ie
