Over 200,000 new tickets have gone on sale at the Phoenix Theatre in London for the popular adaptation – by Irish playwright Enda Walsh – of the 2006 Oscar-winning film.

Since opening at the Pheonix in April, Once, with a cast led by Declan Bennett and Zrinka Cvitešić, has met with popular acclaim from critics and audiences alike.

The musical  show features live music and a stage bar where audience members can join the cast for the start of the show and during intervals.
