'Almost Famous' Is Getting the Broadway Musical Treatment
Published Sep 25, 2018Cameron Crowe immortalized his experience as a young kid writing for Rolling Stone in Almost Famous, and now the Oscar-winning film is making the move to the stage.
According to Rolling Stone, Crowe has been developing a musical based on the film for a few years. Crowe wrote the book, while American Idiot composer Tom Kitt wrote the music; the pair collaborated on lyrics. Jeremy Herrin will direct.
A release date or premiere location for the show has yet to be announced.
"It doesn't even feel like work," Crowe told the magazine. "It feels like a new adventure, a natural progression but still true to the question that started it all — 'What do you love about music?' Can't wait to bring it to you in the coming months."
As we await further details about the upcoming production, watch a clip of Kitt performing on the piano, which Crowe teased on Twitter earlier this week.
