Guy meets Girl—a well-known story told in a new way
Some stories are so deep and don’t require much fluff to be told that the characters do not even need their own names. Meet Guy from Dublin who busks on Grafton Street and Girl with a broken vacuum cleaner who is enthralled by his music. A musician, too, she starts trading music with him until they make a unique and beautiful musical duo. Together, they set out to convince Guy’s ex-girlfriend to take him back and pick up music on their way to their goal. This heart-throbbing love story between two lost people who find passion not only for each other but in music is perfectly put in scene on stage, and you get to witness the mesmerising songs live with tickets for Once the Musical from StubHub.
