Performances will begin on Sept. 13 at The Old Globe theater.
A musical based on Almost Famous, Cameron Crowe's beloved 2000 movie about a teenage journalist's adventures working at Rolling Stone magazine, will have its world premiere in San Diego on Sept. 13 at The Old Globe Theater.
Producers Lia Vollack announced the news of the production on Friday morning (April 26) on behalf of Columbia Live Stage, Joey Parnes, Sue Wagner and John Johnson, revealing that opening night is set for Sept. 27 in the city where Crowe grew up and set the film's story.
"The story has always been a personal one for me and it is a special thrill that we are coming to the Old Globe," Crowe said in a statement. "We used to live in an apartment on Sixth Street across from Balboa Park and the Old Globe. I first met Lester Bangs less than a mile away from where the Almost Famous musical will open. It all feels a little bit like fun destiny to bring this story about loving music back to San Diego, where it all began.”
