‘Once’ musical to hit Broadway this fall

Stage version of 2006 film nabs creative team

The stage tuner version of movie musical “Once” has targeted a fall 2011 berth on Broadway, tapping a creative team that includes scribe Enda Walsh, designer Bob Crowley, helmer John Tiffany and choreographer Stephen Hoggett.

A pre-Rialto workshop staging will have a run at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., in April.

Tiffany, the associate director of the National Theater of Scotland, and Hoggett (“American Idiot”) previously worked together on “Black Watch,” which had a robust international touring life including two well-received stints in Gotham.

“Once,” which features the tunes written by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova for the 2006 film, will rep a Broadway debut for Tiffany as well as for scribe Walsh, whose Off Broadway outings have included plays “The Walworth Farce,” “The New Electric Ballroom” and “Penelope.”

Recent Main Stem credits for Crowley (“Mary Poppins”) have included “The Year of Magical Thinking” and “The Coast of Utopia.”

“Once,” a Dublin-set romance between a street busker and a Czech immigrant, scored an Oscar for “Falling Slowly,” one of the songs penned by Hansard and Irglova.

Smuggler Films partners John N. Hart and Patrick Milling Smith produce with Fred Zollo, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. Exact dates for the ART run have not yet been nailed down, nor have any specifics regarding the move to Broadway.
