The new musical Almost Famous, based on the film about a high school student who lands an assignment from Rolling Stone to head out on tour with an up-and-coming rock band in the 1970s, will receive a spring developmental lab.

Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning Next to Normal composer Tom Kitt is collaborating with the film’s Oscar-winning screenwriter, Cameron Crowe, on the score. Crowe, whose own experience as an aspiring rock journalist inspired the film, is writing the musical’s book.

Jeremy Herrin will direct the month-long lab slated for April 29–May 25, 2019, in New York City.

Casting for the lab will begin in 2019.

Almost Famous is being produced by Lia Vollack for Columbia Live Stage, Joey Parnes, Sue Wagner, and John Johnson.

The 2000 film launched the career of Kate Hudson, who co-starred with Patrick Fugit, Billy Crudup, and Frances McDormand.
