Per Hollywood Reporter:A stage adaptation of the comedy-drama with music, about a 16-year-old Dublin lad who attempts to escape his troubled home life and impress a coolly enigmatic local beauty by starting a band influenced by the new wave pop sounds of the 1980s, will premiere as part of New York Theatre Workshop's 2019-20 season. That off-Broadway venue is the same place where Once had its New York debut in 2011, in a sold-out run that propelled it to Broadway.Like Once, the Sing Street musical will feature a book by Tony-winning playwright Enda Walsh, while music and lyrics are by Carney and Gary Clark. The latter is the one-time frontman of late-'80s Scottish band Danny Wilson, which had an international hit with "Mary's Prayer." The same team wrote the original songs heard in the movie.Dates TBAI love this movie so much! This is exciting!
Yay, this is exciting! Awesome movie. So upset it's not on Netflix anymore--I was actually just searching for it this weekend to watch it because I hadn't seen it in a while.
Love the movie, but put me in the skeptical category. Once turned out ok, but not sure about this one.
Is John Tiffany working on this? I'd love to get the rest of the Once crew on this project

I wish they gave the dates for this already, even the months it would be running would be nice. I'm assuming either late Oct-early Nov opening, as the show before at NYTW ends early Oct.

Responding to my own question ... Julia Murney and Anne L Nathan were involved
Is there any word on when single tickets will go on sale?Edit: Just found it is 10/4 12pm.
I love to see new musicals Off Broadway, but I'm hesitating on this one. I wasn't such a fan of the stage version of Once and thought the movie was much better. I'm expecting prices for this to be pretty high, above $100. Does anyone here know?

Do NYTW shows ever extend their runs? I'd like to see this but won't be in the city until April.
Omg, I NEED Julia Murney in something new! yes!!

Piparoo said: "Do NYTW shows ever extend their runs?

That said, I’m pretty sure Constitution extended into a different theater downtown after extending as much as it could at NYTW, so I suppose that’s a possibility.

So excited about this one I am making my first post (long time lurker)
I got my tickets earlier this week! Love the movie and I'm very excited to see how they'll adapt certain aspects of it. If this production can capture the spirit of the film without getting too bloated then I think it'll be a big hit.
