Photo Coverage: Ronan Keating Joins ONCE!

Ronan Keating opened in the cast of the internationally award-winning Once The Musical to play Guy opposite Jill Winternitz as Girl. Check out Dan Wooller's pics from his opening night!

Based on the much-loved Oscar-winning film, Once bursts onto the stage with a musical celebration of love, friendship and Irish music performed by cast of actor/musicians. A chance encounter between a girl and guy from different worlds but with a shared love of music and songwriting sparks a deep connection and a tender, unexpected romance.

The West End production of Once opened in April 2013 and went on to win the 2014 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Music. The critically acclaimed Australian production of Once opened at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne earlier this week. The Broadway production, winner of 8 Tony awards including Best Musical, will play at the Bernard B Jacobs Theatre until 4 January 2015 where it will have run for three successful years. The US tour, now in its second year, continues and later this year will make a visit to Japan. A Toronto production will open in February next year and the first non-English language production will open in Seoul, South Korea in December 2015. Also in development are productions in Sweden, Brazil, Holland, Greece, The Czech Republic, Thailand, Ireland, along with a Japanese language production.
