A little more than two months after celebrating the opening night of the new musical Almost Famous at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, the new Broadway musical will end its run on January 8, 2023.
Throughout the run, 30 previews will be performed as well as 77 performances after the opening.
A Closing Date Has Been Announced For Almost Famous
A Broadway production of Cameron Crowe’s semi-autobiographical play about his early years working in rock journalism will close its run on January 8, 2023, marking the end of its Broadway run. This is the latest casualty of what appears to be a rough winter Broadway season and joins the ranks of such shows that have closed in the past few weeks as “KPOP,” “Walking With Ghosts,” “A Strange Loop,” and “Ain’t No Mo'” although this latter show has received a brief reprieve.
It demonstrates the brutal economics that are facing shows in the COVID era, as tourism continues to struggle to catch up with pre-pandemic levels, and government subsidies are coming to an end. As of the time when “Almost Famous” is scheduled to end, it will have played 30 preview performances and 77 performances of the show. “Almost Famous” grossed $765,060 last week, and the movie was almost 74% full when it played at AMC the previous week.
It Is Based On Cameron Crowe’s 2000 Film
The movie Almost Famous is based on Cameron Crowe’s 2000 movie of the same name. Crowe won the Academy Award for his screenplay for that film, and it tells the story of a teenager who becomes a Rolling Stone writer by embedding himself in an up-and-coming rock band called Stillwater.
This stage adaptation of Crowe’s screenplay combines classic rock classics by Led Zeppelin and Elton John with new music composed by Tom Kitt to create an exciting theatrical experience. Jeremy Herrin is in charge of directing, and Sarah Ogleby is in order of choreography.
Crowe wrote the book and co-wrote the lyrics for “Almost Famous,” while Tom Kitt wrote the music and co-wrote the songs. Jeremy Herrin directed it, and it was one of his best works to date. The musical is based on the movie and follows an aspiring reporter assigned an assignment by Rolling Stone when he is still a teenager to embed with an up-and-coming band and write about their experiences.
Here Is A List Of The Stars Involved In The Production
Crowe’s stage adaptation features Led Zeppelin and Elton John rock classics mixed with Tom Kitt’s new compositions. Directed by Jeremy Herrin, choreographed by Sarah O’Gleby, the show is choreographed by Jeremy Herrin. Several actors star in the production, including Chris Wood, Anika Larsen, Solea Pfeiffer, Drew Gehling, Rob Colletti, and Casey Likes.

A Broadway production of ‘Almost Famous’ may be entertaining enough and will undoubtedly be of particular interest to those nostalgic baby boomers over 50. Are you looking forward to it as much as I am? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
