This 2012 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical is based on the 2007 Irish musical film and features actors playing their own instruments onstage.


Story:

Guy is a young Irish musician ready to give up his career because his songs, about his one-time girlfriend, are too heartbreaking to sing any more. When he encounters Girl, an inquisitive young Czech woman who believes he could win his ex back by playing his songs to her in New York City, he resumes writing and performing, now with Girl. As the two form their band, seal a loan for Guy’s move, and write new songs together, a love that both inspires and challenges grows between them.
