Day seats would be great! I how that's the case.

Hadley's a good shout actually. I have a few girls in mind for that role. I'll be very interested to see who's in the mix! When does casting start?

Only thing I've heard is that Hadley won't be the guy.

I'm surprised the marketing hasn't gone up in the West End yet, I imagine it'll appear come January but The Book of Mormon seem to have been plastered everywhere on the tube and at stations but nothing for Once.

I actually find the Mormon posters with their "previews sold out!" claim a bit odd... is this actually true?  And why are they only booking three months ahead to the end of May? I've been waiting to book for June for ages now. I suppose they were hoping to be sold out much earlier and then extend booking with great fanfare?  Anyway, wrong thread....

I have booked a preview seat for "Once" in "Premium Band A"  - same price as regular Band A seats (49.50) - does anyone know what's "premium" about these? I took it because it was a single seat directly on the middle aisle - perfect single seat to snap up I thought.

I am slightly concerned that this thread hasn't been posted in since December.  And that's because we basically have no news, I guess.  At least we have posters up on the Tube, but it feels like the show's rather vanished recently.

However, doesn't the show go into previews in Dublin in about a month's time?  How do we not know the casting by now?

I thought there was an open casting before Christmas, but I may be wrong about that.

Preview sales don't look that great for Dublin - weekends (well, the first one anyway) have sold quite well but midweek shows have barely sold any tickets.  And the first Saturday matinee has been cancelled.

I'm going to take a wild punt based on a tweet that Gabriel Vick is involved as he's just tweeted a photo of his guitar with a "guess what show I've just started rehearsing" comment.

I can see him as the Guy, but who knows?
