The Old Globe presents the West Coast premiere of "Almost Famous," a musical based on Cameron Crowe's Oscar-winning movie.

It’s all happening!

San Diego, 1973. Led Zeppelin is king, Richard Nixon is President, and idealistic 15-year-old William Miller is an aspiring music journalist. When Rolling Stone magazine hires him to go on the road with an up-and-coming band, William is thrust into the Rock 'n' Roll circus, where his love of music, his longing for friendship, and his integrity as a writer collide.

Written by Academy Award winner Crowe, "Almost Famous" is about a young man finding his place in the world and the indelible characters he meets along the way.

Directed by Tony Award nominee Jeremy Herrin, it features classic hits as well as new songs by Pulitzer Prize and two-time Tony Award winner Tom Kitt. The show runs Sept. 13 to Oct. 27, 2019. To order tickets by phone call (619) 234-5623.
