Fall in love with the story of an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant who connect over their shared passion for music on the streets of Dublin.

Audience discretion is advised.

From Oregon Arts Watch:
Based on a surprise film hit from 2007, this low-key tale of tentative romance between a Dublin busker and a young Czech immigrant proved as endearing onstage as on screen, winning the 2012 Tony Award for best musical. Having the terrific Irish playwright Enda Walsh write the adaptation has to have helped. But in any case, how could you resist a show with a song called "Broken Hearted Hoover Fixer Sucker Guy"? Isaac Lamb, who has a brilliant track record at Broadway Rose with just this sort of sweet, off-beat musical, directs.
