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.
