The 'Almost Famous' Musical Is Finally Coming to Broadway!

The 'Almost Famous' Musical Is Finally Coming to Broadway!

The musical version of the Oscar-winning movie Almost Famous is officially heading to Broadway.

Almost Famous had a pre-Broadway tryout run in San Diego back in fall 2019 and now three years later, it will be moving to the Great White Way.

The musical’s official Twitter page changed its bio to read, “It’s all happening…Broadway 2022.”

Deadline reports that the musical will likely arrive on Broadway in Fall 2022, seeing as the spring season ends just in a few days.

Cameron Crowe, who wrote and directed the movie, wrote the book and lyrics for the musical with original music and lyrics by Tom Kitt.

Casting has not been announced yet, but Solea Pfeiffer is expected to reprise her role as Penny Lane. She said in a new interview with Town & Country, “I came into this role a girl and I’ll bring it to Broadway as a woman who sees the world differently.”

UPDATE: The show will begin preview performances on September 13 and Chris Wood will be joining the cast for his Broadway debut!
