RALEIGH MEMORIAL AUDITORIUM—One of last season's most charming, moving touring musicals returns to the region this week courtesy of Broadway Series South. Unexpected bonus: The same lead actors who wowed us on Once's first go-round are still in place. Stuart Ward and Dani de Waal's chemistry is as delicate as the nuances explored by a 13-piece Irish folk orchestra in a production where the performers onstage double as the band. Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová's Tony Award-winning score probes the relationship that unfolds between a Dublin busker about to give up on his dreams and the enigmatic Czech immigrant and pianist who intervenes. Get there early for the pre-show Celtic jam—it's worth the admission price by itself. 7:30 p.m. Tues.–Sun.; 2 p.m. Sat.–Sun., $25–$105, 2 E. South St., Raleigh, 919-996-8700, www.dukeenergycenterraleigh.com.Byron Woods

Price: $25-$90
