Ronan Keating Standing Ovation in First Performance of Once last night!

Ronan Keating made his West End debut in hit musical Once last night In a moving performance which he dedicated on Twitter to Stephen Gately. Hellodarling.co.uk went along to check it out – and we were bowled over by the fantastic show! A bit like an intimate gig, Keating’s voice is showcased here to amazing effect surrounded by this great cast of professional stage actors and singers. The audience responded to the sensational performance with a resounding standing ovation and roars of approval! We recommend getting down to the Phoenix Theatre before March when this lovely show ends.

The moving and funny show tells the story of disenchanted Dublin busker Guy (Keating) and his chance meeting with straight-talking Czech Girl (Jill Winternitz) – and follows the twists and turns in their journeys towards true love.

The strand that unites the two – and the other characters – is music. Described as a play with songs as much as a musical, Once is performed by an incredible cast of actor / musicians who remain on stage throughout the show and who play, sing and dance. The Oscar winning songFalling Slowly is a fabulous combination of uplifting and tear-jerking and it soars in the hands of Keating and Winternitz – many of the audience were clearly moved to tears.

There were a good proportion of Ronan Keating fans in the audience last night, who especially enjoyed a cheeky on-stage costume change by the star – but overall it’s clever casting as he feels and sounds very natural. Perhaps not surprisingly – as Keating commented before opening the Dublin based show ‘this was my home town, my people, and the place where I began my own music career’.

Well congratulations from us Ronan and the rest of the cast – a fabulous first night performance in this beautiful show!

REVUE :

Claire Naylor

Lost for words!! I felt so nervous for Ronan in his debut as Guy but wow he and the whole cast did not disappoint for a second. Such a beautiful story full of so much emotion. The tears were of laughter as much as they were for the more tender scenes. I for one will be back many more times and Ronan did himself, his fans and all his cast mates so so proud. Excellent and a must see

Sneak peek at... Ronan Keating in Once
Production photos of Ronan Keating in Once have been released. The Boyzone star joined the West End musical as Guy earlier this week, taking over from David Hunter. He stars opposite Jill Winternitz as Girl. Check out the pictures below (click image to enlarge).

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.

First look pictures as Ronan Keating makes West End debut in Once

The former Boyzone singer plays the male lead alongside Jill Winternitz


pictures have been releasing showing Ronan Keating as the new lead in award-winning musical Once.

The former Boyzone singer has made his West End debut as busker ‘Guy’, starring alongside Jill Winternitz as his immigrant love interest, ‘Girl’.

at the Phoenix Theatre

Based on the 2007 Oscar-winning film of the same name, the story follows the characters during an eventful week in Dublin as they share their love of music and songwriting. Soon, a deep connection is formed between the pair, and a tender, unexpected romance begins to blossom.

Keating was "truly bowled over" when offered the part of 'Guy' in Once. "I believe it's a modern day masterpiece," he said.

"When I was asked about playing the lead male I was completely overwhelmed because I knew it would be perfect - this was my home town, my people, and the place where I begin my own music career."

The theatre show opened in April 2013 and went on to win the 2014 Olivier Award for outstanding achievement in music. The music and lyrics are by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, both of whom starred as the leads in the film and won an Oscar for best original song (“Falling Slowly”).


Keating performed with the cast of Once on BBC's Children in Need charity telethon earlier this month, which also featured a reunion performance from Nineties pop group S Club 7.

Tickets for Once at London’s Phoenix Theatre are on sale now from £19.50, with dates booking until 21 March 2015.

West End star Ronan Keating wants theatre's front row moved back over fan mob fears

The star is putting his safety first


By Owen Tonks Web Writer on Monday, 24 November 2014 at 08:18

Most boyband stars love the attention they get from their fans – devotees throw their underwear at them, shower them with love and kisses anywhere they can and sometimes even try to jump in their bed.

But Boyzone star Ronan Keating is a bit more sensible now and is putting his safety first now he’s appearing in the West End.

The singer wants the front row at London’s Phoenix Theatre to be moved back as he’s worried his fans will try to mob him while he’s on stage during his musical Once.

A source told The Sun: “Ronan’s female fans may well be into their thirties, but they are known to sometimes get excited and revert back to their teenage years.

“Ronan isn’t being a diva by requesting this. He is just taking precautions through the years of experience.”

The star took on the role of Irish busker Guy in the production last week and hopes to wow audiences with his performance.

Good luck, Ronan! We hope those bras thrown by fans don’t take your eyes out!

About a girl

On November 25, 2014 by Natalie Egling



Jill Winternitz,

Glass is talking music with 28-year-old actress Jill Winternitz, but it’s not all musical theatre from the female lead of Irish playwright Enda Walsh’s Once, based on a much-loved, low-budget indie film. “I lived in Washington State for a while and I think it made me quite grunge,” she laughs. “I was really into Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Nirvana and Modest Mouse.”

In Once, Jill plays a young Czech mother known as Girl alongside Ronan Keating’s Guy, an Irish busker, in a boy-meets-girl story of love, friendship and music. The actors double as the show’s band and Jill had to pick up from discarded childhood piano lessons for the part. Not that you could tell – it sounds like she’s been playing for years, holding her own against professional musicians. Originally from California, Jill studied at UCLA and the Moscow Art Theatre, before moving to London to continue her training at RADA. She made her West End debut at the Piccadilly Theatre, starring as Baby in a sell-out UK tour of Dirty Dancing. The role earned her a West End Frame Award nomination.

What came first for you, Once the movie or the musical?
The film. I watched it when I was on school holidays during my time at drama school in California. It was so different from anything I’d seen and I was quite taken by it. It’s so charming in that it’s very low budget but the emotions it captures are so raw and so real. Then, I was in New York a year and a half ago when I first heard that Once had been made into a musical. It’s a beautifully intimate, indie film and my first thought was, “How’s that going to work?’ But I didn’t know of John Tiffany [the show’s director] or Enda Walsh at the time. I went and saw the show on Broadway and was absolutely blown away by it. It was one of those pieces of theatre that I felt arrested by. I never saw myself in it, but then my other half said, “You’d be really good for that role.’ That really played on my mind; I thought, ‘Yeah, that would be cool.’ At the time, it had already been cast in the West End, so I started relearning the piano and the songs in case an audition ever came up.

Then, early last November, my agent called me up to tell me I had an audition! It seemed like such a dream; like something that was never going to line up for me. After the initial excitement, there was a lot of late-night practicing between shows (I was playing Baby in Dirty Dancing on the West End). A few auditions – and quite a few months – later, I found myself in the role. It’s surreal.

You took piano lessons as a child, then stopped. How easy was it to pick that up again for Once?
I had a teacher who taught piano and singing, but I was more interested in the singing part and the piano bit fell by the wayside. Then, I started doing more theatre and acting, which took up a lot of my time. But growing up we always had a piano, so I’d play from time to time. I didn’t put in the dedication and the hours, and, unfortunately, I’m making up for it now.

When I got the role of Girl, I could play the songs but I was still a bit shaky. They hired an incredible piano teacher for me who’s a classically trained concert pianist and also plays a lot of West End shows. I started training with her and then production was like, “OK, Jill’s good enough now, she can stop lessons,” but I wanted to continue with her because I really love it. She’s now preparing me for a piano exam. But what with rehearsing with Ronan for the show and performing together on Children in Need, I’ve been a very bad student [laughs].

Ronan Keating recently took over from David Hunter as Guy. What was the transition like?
I started rehearsals with Ronan a few weeks ago. I was rehearsing with him during the day and doing performances with David in the evening. Ronan and I were creating something together that’s new, and I am adapting my performance to him, but then at night I have to remember what I do with David. It took a lot of concentration to juggle those two: one guy in the day, one guy at night [laughs]. Last week Saturday was David’s last show and it was such an emotional day. He went out and “put a flag in it”. We’re all going to miss him so much, but he’s going to go out and do amazing things.

Now that Ronan had his first show, it’s such an exciting new chapter. And he brings with him a lot of energy – there’s so much support for him. He has fans from all over the world who came to his first show. They’re lovely fans who are so generous with their support, which extended to me and the rest of the cast, too.

One thing that is bonkers in a way, is that Ronan is the first Irish Guy. The script just flows out of his mouth. It doesn’t even seem like lines because he’s so authentic in his accent. The way that he is is so Dublin. It feels so natural and I’m loving that.

It’s a very intimate performance between Girl and Guy. Does that suit your personality, or do you have to dig deep to get into character?
I trained at RADA and there it was all about finding truth and rawness in our performances – whether with classical or contemporary writing. Once requires absolute emotional honesty in order for it to work. It’s such a fragile show that relies on a delicate chemistry between the actors. I thrive off of it. I find myself constantly digging deeper to improve my performance daily. Each night is a chance to rework things and get it closer to what I want it to be.

So it’s never a chore performing in a long-running show like Once?
I think that’s because of the quality of the writing and the music, which is so uplifting. Also, the creative team on this job are incredible – I’ve never seen anything like it. John Tiffany is so involved, and even though he’s off doing a lot of other projects, he’s still around. There’s never a moment where I think, “OK, we’re done.” It’s constantly evolving and I think that’s why it’s so gratifying. It gives me a challenge every day. And having Ronan come in as Guy is another whole exciting element that adds a freshness to it. This show is so beautiful in that it requires each actor, especially Guy and Girl, to reach within themselves and bring themselves to the role. So inevitably, every show you see with different leads is going to establish its own uniqueness and its own truth.

He has sold 25 million albums with Boyzone and millions more as a solo artist — but Ronan Keating says making his West End stage debut is the most exhilarating experience of his career.

This evening Keating will perform his official opening night as the male lead in Once, the story of an Irish busker who meets and makes music with a young Czech pianist, played by Jill Winternitz.


The 37-year-old singer, who grew up on the outskirts of Dublin but now lives in south-west London, said: “I love going to see West End shows but I never saw myself doing a musical. It never dawned on me. Then I saw this show, and it’s more a play with great songs, and there’s so much I can relate to, being an Irish story from Dublin. It was so emotional, so funny and entertaining, I thought, ‘I want to do this.’ This character wears his heart on his sleeve. I totally relate to this guy.”

The musical, based on a low-budget Oscar-winning film, is on at the Phoenix Theatre. Keating performs solo as well as with Winternitz and a band of actor/musicians — and the audience is even invited up to join them.



This is the first time I’ve been totally exposed as a musician. That’s why it’s so exhilarating,” he said. “I can show people what I am and what I do but do it is as the character. I’m really loving it. It’s been incredible, one of the great experiences of my life.

“I want to be as good every single night and give it the same passion and enthusiasm and energy I’ve given every show. I hope I can bring people here who have never been to the theatre, and convince people who are seasoned theatregoers that I’m good enough to be here.”


But it was too early to say whether he would ever do a musical again: “Let me get to March. It’s so daunting to think about. I’ve never been in the same venue for more than a week before.” The singer, who has already performed in previews of the show, will be supported by family and friends tonight. “The boys are coming along. We support each other always,” he said.

The star added that the Boyzone era, which generated hits such as Love Me For A Reason, was “magic”, but: “We’ve all grown up now and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We’re not splitting the atom. It’s pop music.”

Once continues at the Phoenix in Charing Cross Road until March 21.

Ronan Keating in Once review: Possibly the best thing he's ever done






Eyebrows were slightly raised when it was announced that Ronan Keating would be taking over the Guy role in the West End production of Once.

While it was known that Keating was an accomplished pop singer whose Irish background suited the part, he hadn't acted on a West End stage before and was perhaps marginally too old to play the role, so it was intriguing to see how he would fare.




The great thing about the lead male role in Once is that it has room for reinvention by whoever plays him. EastEnders star Declan Bennett gave it some grit, Arthur Darvill provided a cheekier side, while David Hunter brought some charm.

As it turned out, Keating more than impresses in the role. Considering his day job is not acting, there were several scenes which would make you think otherwise if you didn't know who he was.



At the very beginning of the show, he appears a little nervous and rigid.


But as the play goes on and he gains confidence from the audience's positive reaction, he shines as a more vulnerable Guy compared to others, with an almost childlike innocence.

Keating's vocal ability has perhaps never got the praise it deserves. When listening to him here, he proves that he has one of the finest pop vocals of the past couple of decades, and it has really improved over the years.


He doesn't always hit the high notes that previous Guys have, resorting to take on the lower keys - but that doesn't take anything away from his impressive performance.

Without meaning to diminish his 20-year career, this is quite possibly the best thing that Ronan Keating has ever done. It's hard to imagine other non-acting popstars like Gary Barlow or Robbie Williams taking on such a role.




[b]After his Once journey comes to an end, Keating should make the most of it and perhaps release an EP of songs from the show and go down the folky route for his next album. It's a direction which suits his voice much better than commercial pop.[/b]



It isn't just Ronan who shines in Once.

The musical is a beautiful production that combines humour, romance and a touch of sadness, combining the best elements from Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová's original film and adding enough extras as poetic license.

In particular, Jill Winternitz continues to charm as Girl, while Tim Prottey-Jones is hilarious as music shop owner Billy, and Jez Unwin perhaps provides the most laughs as the deadpan Bank Manager.



The whole ensemble of actors and musicians are nothing short of incredible, and at times it feels like we're being treated to a live folk gig with a story attached.

There is nothing quite like Once on the West End right now, and it'll be a shame if it closes at the end of its current residency in 2015.

The tactic of hiring a celebrity name with little acting experience may puzzle some theatre-goers - but as long as they cast stars with genuine talent like Ronan Keating, they'll be grand.

Once is currently playing at London's Phoenix Theatre until March 21, with performances on Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm and Thursday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm. Ronan Keating will perform as Guy at all shows except on January 20 and January 24.

Ronan Keating: West End debut in Once 'liberating'

Ronan Keating: West End debut in Once 'liberating'
By Neil Smith




Keating to make West End debut
Singer's second chance at speech
Boyzone star Ronan Keating has called making his West End debut in musical Once "the most liberating experience".

Speaking after his official first night at London's Phoenix theatre, the Irish singer said he was "all over the place" at the start of Tuesday's performance but was "feeling great" by the end.

"The stress and fear when I walked out was overwhelming," he admitted. "But once I got into it, it was wonderful."

Keating will appear in the adaptation of the 2007 film until 21 March.

The 37-year-old plays a character known simply as 'Guy' in this romantic tale of a Dublin busker who meets and makes music with a young Czech mother.

Keating, who has enjoyed success as a solo artist as well as with his Boyzone bandmates, said appearing in Once was "a very different monster".

"You're very exposed on stage," he said. "I've done a week in the show, and every single night you walk out feeling naked."

The singer said he had not considered musical theatre before being offered the show, regarding it as the domain of his late bandmate Stephen Gately.

Gately, who died in 2009 at the age of 33, combined his pop career with roles in West End musicals including Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

'Play with songs'
"I never thought I'd do a musical; that was Steo's gig," he said. "That was his thing and he was amazing at it, but it wasn't for me.

"It was this show that changed everything. It's more like a play with great songs, so it was something I thought I could do."

Keating, who juggled rehearsals with his judging duties on the Australian version of The X Factor, said he was paying tribute to Gately by wearing red socks every night on stage.

"Red was his favourite colour so that's my little tipping of the cap to Stephen," he revealed. "I wish he was here."

Keith Duffy, Shane Lynch and Mikey Graham of Boyzone were in the audience on Tuesday to cheer the chart-topping band's lead singer.

Broadcasters Fiona Bruce, Mariella Frostrup and Julia Bradbury were also in attendance, as were actresses Claire Sweeney, Maureen Lipman and Michelle Collins.

'Highly effective'
Writing in the Evening Standard, reviewer Fiona Mountford said Keating "impresses" and gives "an extremely creditable account of himself" in the musical.

John Tiffany's "thoughtful production", she continued, "exquisitely" maintains the "fragile equilibrium" between Keating's 'Guy' and Jill Winternitz's 'Girl'.

"It feels patronising to boyband singers-turned-actors everywhere to say he is surprisingly good," said David Lister of Keating in The Independent.

"So let's rather say that he is highly effective in exuding a careworn melancholy that disguises loss. He captures the hearts of the audience seemingly effortlessly."

Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova played the lead roles in the 2007 original and went on to win an Oscar for their song Falling Slowly.

The stage version opened in New York in 2011, transferred to Broadway in 2012 and won eight Tony awards before its London launch last year.

Once, Phoenix theatre, review: Boyzone's Ronan Keating melts hearts in his West End debut

To describe any play as charming risks sounding luke-warm, but this much-garlanded musical has charm in abundance and that makes for a delightful evening.

Set largely in a Dublin pub, with almost every member of the cast singing and playing an instrument, the seemingly doomed love story between Irish songwriting lad and immigrant Czech mother manages to be both tender and refreshingly funny.

The new interest is the casting of Boyzone singer Ronan Keating as the male lead, making his West End stage debut. It feels patronising to boyband singers-turned-actors everywhere to say he is surprisingly good, so let’s rather say that he is highly effective in exuding a careworn melancholy that disguises loss. He captures the hearts of the audience seemingly effortlessly.



In this he is more than matched by Jill Winternitz as the Czech immigrant, whose mischief, flirtatiousness and disarming directness mask her own sadness. Her Czech flatmates who have learned English from TV soap operas -- “Good evening. What! She is pregnant and want to keep the baby!” -- are just one of many unexpected bonuses that bring a smile to the face in an evening that mixes comedy, music, sadness and romance with two heartwarming central performances.
