Here’s a brand new trailer for the upcoming UK tour of hit musical Once featuring leads Daniel Healy and Emma Lucia performing ‘Falling Slowly’.
Based on the much-loved film of the same name, Once tells the story of a Dublin street busker (Healy) and a Czech musician (Lucia) who unexpectedly fall in love. Following their relationship across five short days, big changes happen to both of them in little ways.
