Markéta Irglová and Glen Hansard are reuniting, for an extended run in celebration of the 15th anniversary of their film Once. The duo reconvened for the first time in 10 years in March 2022—an extension of their never-ending bond and friendship—for a limited number of sold-out shows and an overwhelmingly positive response. Irglová and Hansard came to prominence starring in 2007’s Once and winning the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2008 with their composition “Falling Slowly.” A year later they released the critically acclaimed album Strict Joy before branching out into solo careers. The two remained in regular contact, appearing on each other’s records or on stages randomly whenever paths crossed. Once, The Musical debuted in 2012 and won eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical. It ran three years on Broadway and is in production as a touring musical. Over the past decade, in all its iterations, Once has become a modern classic and cultural touchstone referenced in everything from The Simpsons to Ted Lasso. The fan base this modern masterpiece created looms large in the minds and hearts of many. Irglová and Hansard have been incredibly busy in the last year and outside of their upcoming tour, each have a number of projects in the works, as well not ruling out the possibility of new music together.

MALINDA will be opening the show.
