The Tony and Grammy Award-winning Best Musical Once, just celebrated its 1000th performance on Broadway last night, August 13. Following the 8:00pm performance, Once composer Glen Hansard, who flew in from Los Angeles after performing songs from his new album at the Hollywood Bowl, joined the cast on stage at the curtain call and BroadwayWorld brings you photos from the special event below!

ONCE is based on the 2007 Academy Award-winning film and plays on Broadway at the Bernard B. JacobsTheatre (242 West 45th Street). The production opened to rave reviews on Sunday, March 18, 2012. ONCE won eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. The production was also named Best Musical by the New York Drama Critics Circle, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle and Lucille Lortel Awards. ONCE is the winner of the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.

The cast of Once features Paul Alexander Nolan as 'Guy' and Jessie Fisher as 'Girl.' Also in the company are Laurel Griggs, David Patrick Kelly, Katrina Lenk, Anne L. Nathan, Madeleine Pace, Lucas Papaelias, Scott Stangland, Andy Taylor, Ryan Vona, Erikka Walsh, Paul Whitty, and J. Michael Zygo.

Featuring an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own instruments onstage, Once tells the enchanting tale 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 haunting love songs. As the chemistry between them 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 and the power of music to connect us all.
