ONCE is the Olivier and Tony Award winning smash-hit musical based on the much-loved, Oscar winning movie.

Now starring Ronan Keating stars as Guy

HURRY – Show must end on 21 March 2015

Once is the brand new musical based on the much-loved Oscar-winning film and is now playing at the Phoenix Theatre in London.

International pop singer and Boyzone star Ronan Keating is now starring in the show as Guy, alongside Jill Winternitz as Girl.

The musical is brought to vibrant life by a hugely talented cast of actors, singers and musicians who unleash the exhilaration of an Irish ceilidh live on stage.

All of the songs from the film are featured in the show, including the Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly”. A tremendously talented creative team includes direction by John Tiffany, a book by Irish playwright Enda Walsh, and music and lyrics by Glen Hansard (The Commitments) and Markéta Irglová. Once the movie was written and directed by John Carney.

Winner of the 2014 Olivier Award for outstanding achievement in music and winner of 8 Tony Awards on Broadway – including best musical – this dazzlingly inventive production is an absolute must-see musical.

Hurry now and see this award-winning show before it leaves London on 21 March 2015.


This old-fashioned love story is about an Irish busker who falls in love with a young Czech mother through their shared passion for music and song writing.

It’s an original and irresistibly joyous celebration of love, friendship and music.
