Meta-musical 'Once' officially opens on Broadway.

Broadway audiences will be swept away on the streets of Dublin by new musical Once, starring Steve Kazee and Cristin Milioti, which opens on March 18 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. The show, based on the independent film of the same name, began previews on February 28 after a successful off-Broadway run at New York Theatre Workshop. John Tiffany directs.

Featuring a score by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, who won an Academy Award for the Once song “Falling Slowly,” the show is set on the streets of Dublin. Over the course of one fateful week, an unexpected friendship and artistic collaboration between a street musician (Guy) and a Czech immigrant (Girl) quickly evolves into a powerful but complicated love story.

“[Hansard and Irglova] have written such gorgeous music,” leading lady Milioti recently told, “And they've gotten a group of people together who just absolutely love playing it and that's intoxicating. That was definitely what made me fall in love with it.”

The musical adaptation features a book by Irish playwright Enda Walsh, movement by Steven Hoggett, set and costume design by five-time Tony winner Bob Crowley, music direction by Martin Lowe, lighting design by Natasha Katz and sound design by Clive Goodwin.
