The six-time Olivier nominated musical Once welcomes Arthur Darvill who plays Guy opposite Zrinka Cvitesic as Girl. Darvill joined the London production having played the role on Broadway. Check out a first look at Darvill in the cast below!

Directed by John Tiffany, the West End production of Once opened in April 2013.

Later this year an Australian production will open at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne while the US tour continues.

The current West End cast comprises Darvill and Cvitesic who are joined by Fiona Bruce (Baruska), Jamie Cameron (Emcee) Mark Carlisle (Da), Matthew Ganley (Svec), Mathew Hamper (Andre), Daniel Healy (Eamon), Loren O'Dair (Reza), Miria Parvin (Ex-girlfriend), Tim Prottey-Jones (Billy), and Jez Unwin (Bank Manager).

Based on the much-loved Oscar-winning film, Once is a celebration of love, friendship and music. When an Irish busker and a young Czech mother meet through a shared love of music, their songwriting sparks a deep connection and a tender, longing romance that neither of them could have expected.
