Daniel Healy and Emma Lucia return to the roles of ‘Guy’ and ‘Girl’ after their warm reception last year at the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich and Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch. Daniel Healy is a singer-songwriter, musician and actor, who has co-written songs for multi-platinum artist Ronan Keating including the single Breathe, which topped the BBC Radio 2 Playlist. Theatre credits include Backbeat and Once, both in the West End. Emma Lucia made her professional debut as Marilyn and understudying Carole King in the UK Tour of Beautiful, before taking on the role of Girl in Once


Based on the critically acclaimed 2007 film by John Carney, Once tells the story of two lost souls – a Dublin street busker and a Czech musician – who unexpectedly fall in love. Set across just five days, this uplifting production follows their blossoming romance and the big changes that happen to them both in little ways. 


Both film and stage adaptation feature a celebrated original score by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, including the Academy Award-winning song “Falling Slowly”, which features in the latest trailer. 


Following the incredible success of the cult Irish indie film, which was shot on a micro-budget of just $160,000, Once made its stage premiere at the New York Theatre Workshop in 2011 before transferring to Broadway in 2012, where it won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. Since then, the show has been performed around the world, with the 2013 West End production receiving an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music.
