Stuart Ward and Dani de Waal from the ONCE Tour Company

‘Once’

Tuesday-next Sunday: Playwright Enda Walsh did the book for the stage adaptation of John Carney’s 2006 Dublin-set romance about an Irish busker and a Czech flower girl. The two, Guy and Girl, are emotionally entangled with others yet attracted to each other. The pair fuel each other’s creativity, making music to fill a lovely show. The production, in which the cast also serves as the orchestra, won eight Tonys in 2012, including one for best musical. The tour stars Stuart Ward as Guy and Dani de Waal as Girl. The cast includes Claire Wellin, a Mankato State University grad. (7:30 p.m. Tue.-Thu.; 8 p.m. Fri.; 2 & 8 p.m. Sat.; 1 & 6:30 p.m. next Sun. $54-$129. Orpheum Theatre, 910 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls. 1-800-982-2787, www.ticketmaster.com, State Theatre box office.)
