The Experience

The smash Broadway musical Once is the winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Actor, Best Book, and Best Direction of a Musical. The play is based on the 2006 film of the same name about an Irish busker and a Czech immigrant who become friends and team up to make music together. The pair express how much they love one another through ballads that they composed themselves. The gorgeous symphony of music is one of the key features that this play has to offer. This heartwarming story about young love has been a hit with fans and critics alike. Tickets won't last long for this red-hot show, so secure your tickets through StubHub today!


The book Once was written by Enda Walsh retaining most of the songs written by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, such as the Academy Award-winning "Falling Slowly." The musical premiered at the New York Theater Workshop in 2011 and then moved to Broadway in 2012. The production got eleven 2012 Tony Award nominations, and won eight of those awards. In addition to that, the musical won the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical and the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.


Once premiered at the New York Theater Workshop on December 6, 2011 (previews from November 15, 2011), and closed on January 15, 2012. Directed by John Tiffany with choreography by Steven Hoggett, the cast included Steve Kazee (Guy) and Cristin Milioti (Girl). This production was nominated for Lucille Lortel Awards for Outstanding Musical (winner), Outstanding Director, Outstanding Choreographer (winner), Outstanding Scenic Design (Bob Crowley), Outstanding Lighting Design (Natasha Katz) (winner), Outstanding Sound Design (Clive Goodwin), and Outstanding Lead Actress. The production won the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Musical. The musical later opened on Broadway at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on February 28, 2012, officially on March 18, 2012, again with direction by John Tiffany and movement by Steven Hoggett. The production won the Drama League Award, Distinguished Production of a Musical for 2011-12.

In both the New York Theater Workshop production and the Broadway production, the cast also served as the orchestra. The Broadway production used a minimalist set, which was a bar in center stage with chairs lining stage left and right. Exiting cast members merely stepped to the side of the stage and sat down. It was from these chairs that they served as the orchestra. The bar was used at intermission as a working bar for the refreshment of the customers, instead of having a bar upstairs or outside.

Ben Brantley reviewed the Broadway production in The New York Times, writing: "What was always wonderful about Once, its songs and its staging, has been magnified. In the meantime its appealing stars, Steve Kazee and Cristin Milioti, have only grown in presence and dimensionality."

A West End Production opened at the Phoenix Theatre on April 9, 2013, with previews from March 16. A typical Broadway performance runs two hours and 25 minutes.

In late 2013, the first North American national tour of Once kicked off in Providence, Rhode Island. On September 16, 2013, Melbourne Theatre Company confirmed the production's Australian premiere as part of its 2014 subscription season, with subscribers earning exclusive access to the season's first five weeks. The show will run in Australia from October 1 through November 9.

The London production of Once has been nominated for five Awards, which include Best New Musical, Best Actor in a Musical (Declan Bennett), Best Actress in a Musical (Zrinka Cvitešić), Best Director (John Tiffany), and Best Original Music (Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová).
