“Once,” the Tony-winning stage adaptation of the 2006 film, is coming to Minneapolis next season, the Hennepin Theatre Trust today announced Monday.
The musical about an Irish street musician and the music-loving Czech flower vendor who becomes his muse is part of a 2013-14 Broadway season that has newer titles and old favorites.
