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.
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.
