Tonight's performance of Once on Wednesday, February 20 at 8:00pm has been cancelled due to weather and for the safety of our performers, staff, and patrons. Olney Theatre Center administrative offices and box office are currently closed due to inclement weather.

The Tony Award®-winning playwright of Lend Me a Tenor is back with another farce set on the precipice of a big concert in 1936 Paris. When star tenor Tito Merelli refuses to perform at a Three Tenors-style concert, American impresario Saunders and his sidekick Max stumble-upon Beppo the Bellman, who happens to look exactly like Tito and has a voice to match. Throw in a couple of young lovers caught in flagrante delicto, Tito’s fiery wife, a randy Russian diva, some slamming doors, and the result is an uproarious laugh-riot and evening of adult fun.

Featuring comedy veterans Emily Townley (Bad Dog) and Alan Wade (Dial 'M' for Murder).
