WINNER: Lauren King

Winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Once is a new Broadway musical adapted from one of my absolute favorite movies.

The story follows a Dublin street musician who is about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his love songs. They begin to collaborate and what follows is not your everyday romance.

The stage production, which will be presented at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre January 28 through February 2, will feature an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments on stage. This promises to be a theatrically breathtaking experience that will be perfect for date night.

Tickets start at $52.15 but you can win 2 for opening night (Jan 28) tickets here!!
