Has Broadway show found a London home Once & for all?
Date: 21 September 2012
Broadway musical Once, based on the Oscar-winning film of the same name, is headed for the Phoenix Theatre next year, according to the Daily Mail.
The show, which won eight Tony awards in New York in June, including Best Musical and Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical, will reportedly begin performances at the Phoenix in March.
The show, which has a book by Irish playwright Enda Walsh and music by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, opened on Broadway in 2012. It features many of the songs from the film, plus some new numbers.
It goes into the Phoenix theatre after Goodnight Mister Tom, which is playing there over the Christmas period, which itself replaces the long-running Blood Brothers.

|Not seen the show, but have listened to the soundtrack. Apart from the whole actor-musician thing, I cannot for the life of me see what the fuss is all about! - Chjris||12 Oct 12|
|Not another dreadful Broadway musical please! I saw the production on Broadway and was NOT impressed. - execelsior||12 Oct 12|
|I saw it in NY. Absolutely one of the most amazing theatre experiences I've ever had. Steve Kazee and Cristin Millioti sizzle. The entire cast makes a cohesive whole. What an incredible ensemble of talent. All on stage nearly throughout, singing, acting, and playing their instruments. WOW. Seeing Once is definitely not enough..... - Theatre Hound||21 Sep 12|
