EJ Classic Returns to Stage Version of ''Almost Famous''

Written by Chief Editor.

The blockbuster film Almost Famous is being adapted for the stage.
 
Cameron Crowe wrote the script (adapted from his screenplay), and Tom Kitt has composed the score — except for some of the famous songs the show will retain from the 2000 movie, including Elton’s Tiny Dancer.
 
Tiny Dancer will premiere at San Diego's Old Globe theater in September, and it's believed, will play New York in 2020.

Almost Famous is about Crowe’s experiences covering rock bands in the ’70s as he tried to make his way into journalism and get his first cover story for Rolling Stone magazine.
