Once confirms West End closure

Producers of Once have confirmed the musical will close in the West End on 21st March 2015 ahead of a planned European tour.

Ronan Keating (pictured right) and Jill Winternitz will lead the cast for the remainder of its run. It has also been confirmed that the Broadway production will close in January, concluding a three year run.  

The West End production opened in April 2013 and went on to win the 2014 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music. Zrinka Cvitešić also won an Olivier Award for her performance in the original cast as well as the West End Frame Award for Best West End Debut.

The Australian production of Once opened at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne earlier this week. The US tour, now in its second year, continues and later this year will make a visit to Japan. A Toronto production will open in February next year and the first non-English language production will open in Seoul, South Korea in December 2015. Also in development are productions in Sweden, Brazil, Holland, Greece, The Czech Republic, Thailand, Ireland, along with a Japanese language production.
