The love is powerful, but the music is even more so. Prepare to be blown away with rich, heart-tugging sound.
This is a story about a guy and a girl falling in love. It’s a simple idea, one that the writers decided to keep as simple as possible while naming the characters: Guy and Girl. Guy is played by the fantastic Paul Alexander Norton, perhaps best known for his portrayal as Jesus in the Broadway revival of Jesus Christ Superstar. Girl is played by Joanna Christie, who made her Broadway debut with this very production. Director John Tiffany and a very talented crew round out the roster for Once.
Once is now playing on Broadway at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, located at 242 West 45th Street. The venue, which opened its doors in 1927, was originally known as The Royale Theatre. It was only recently, in 2005, that the location was renamed to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, in honor of the longtime Shubert Organization president of the same name. This beautiful venues seats 1,101 Broadway fans each performance.
