PARTY SPOTS AVAILABLE !!! New Year's Eve: Musical & After-Show Party

Join us for a fabulous New Year's Eve that begins at the Royal Alexandra Theatre with Once, an award-winning musical of a Dublin street musician who's about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his music. 

This show has received rave reviews. In 2012, it won eight Tony® Awards, including Best Musical.

After the show, we'll go out to celebrate New Year's at Jack Astor's on John Street!

UPDATE Dec. 27: This performance is now sold out. However, there are still spots available for the after-show gathering that begins at 10:45 p.m. at Jack Astor's on John Street. To attend the gathering, you must RSVP on this event page and send BELINDA an e-mail to reserve your spot(s). There is no specific price for the gathering. You can order from Jack Astor's regular menu. There is no minimum purchase requirement. 

THE SHOW

ONCE is a truly original Broadway experience. Featuring an impressive ensemble of actors/musicians who play their own instruments onstage, ONCE tells the enchanting tale of a Dublin street musician who writes haunting love songs. As the chemistry between him and a beautiful young woman grows, his music soars to powerful new heights... but their unlikely connection turns out to be deeper and more complex than your everyday romance. Emotionally captivating and theatrically breathtaking, ONCE draws you in from the very first note and never lets go. It’s an unforgettable story about going for your dreams... not living in fear... and the power of music to connect all of us. More information.

    I really had a good time at Jack Astors. A bit noisy for my taste but never mind, the company made up for it. We had a hard time getting our orders, napkins, utensils, etc, but hey, it was New Year's Eve the and joint was jumpin'. The wait staff probably did the best they could.

    The show was good, but the seats were too cramped. Thanks to Belinda for giving me the aisle seat, but that still didn't provide with enough room for my feet.

    "Once" was terrific. Unfortunately, I was not feeling well (start of a cold) so went home after the show to celebrate with a hot toddy for medicinal purposes. I'm sure everyone had a great time at Jack Astor's and I wish all of them a Healthy and Happy New Year!

    Dear Belinda,

    I am positive that the New Years Night will be a Beautiful one, incl. the weather!
    However, just in case, lets have an alternative place of meeting you, like inside the Theatre, on the hallway somewhere...?

      @ Nadia: Parking info is available here: http://www.mirvish.co...­. Please email me offline if you have any further questions so they don't get sent to everyone on the attendees' list.

    Hello! Is anyone planning on staying downtown? I am thinking about getting a hotel room for the evening and I was wondering if anyone else was doing the same? I would be interested in sharing a room; anyone interested?

    December 15, 2013

  • Belinda

    Everyone: PLEASE update your RSVP question with the word "yes" if you are planning to join me at Jack Astor's after the show. Posting your intentions, emailing me or phoning me makes it extremely difficult for me to keep track of your plans. :-(
