Paul Alexander Nolan as Guy & Jessie Fisher as Girl in 'Once'
About the Show
After over two years, it’s time to shut the piano fall board and put the guitar in its case. The Tony-winning Broadway musical Once will raise its hopeful voice for one final time on January 4, 2015. At the time of closing, the tuner will have played 22 preview performances and 1, 167 regular performances since it began on February 28 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
Based on the award-winning 2006 indie film, Once tells the story of a whirlwind romance between an Irish street musician (known as “Guy”) and a Czech immigrant (known as “Girl”). Directed by John Tiffany and featuring music and lyrics by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova with a book by Enda Walsh, Once is the winner of eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Once currently stars Paul Alexander Nolan as Guy and Jessie Fisher as Girl, in addition to Laurel Griggs, David Patrick Kelly, Sophie Knapp, Katrina Lenk, Anne L. Nathan, Lucas Papaelias, Scott Stangland, Andy Taylor, Ryan Vona, Erikka Walsh, Paul Whitty and J. Michael Zygo.
