Talk about authenticity! To find musicians to fill the folksy cast of Once, producers of the forthcoming West End production of the Tony-winning musical looked to the streets of Dublin for singers and actors with a genuinely Irish sound. Open auditions for the show (which starts at the Phoenix Theatre on March 16, 2013) were held at Whelan’s, one of Ireland’s most famous pubs—and one that certainly hearkens back to the Broadway production’s award-winning set design. So did the creative team of Once find what it was looking for when it went “home” to Dublin? We’ll find out if we see some of these shining faces lighting up the West End next spring!

THE PERFORMANCE OF ONCE FOR WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22 WAS CANCELLED AT THE NATIONAL ARTS CENTRE. Once will continue its run from October 23 through to October 26 at the National Arts Centre. Once ticket holders for the October 22 performances may exchange tickets at the National Arts Centre for another performance, subject to availability.
