Book & Lyrics by Cameron Crowe and Tom Kitt

When Rolling Stone magazine hires him to go on the road with an up-and-coming band, William is thrust into the rock-and-roll circus, where his love of music, his longing for friendship, and his integrity as a writer collide. Written by Academy Award winner Cameron Crowe based on his iconic film, 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.

A Globe-commissioned world premiere musical by five-time Tony Award nominee Michael John LaChiusa. The Gardens of Anuncia is inspired by the life story of an icon of the American stage who directs and choreographs the show at the Globe: Broadway legend Graciela Daniele. Anuncia tends the garden of her country house as she reflects on her life, looking back on her girlhood in Juan Perón’s Argentina and paying homage to the family of women whose sacrifices allowed her to become an artist. This funny, poignant, and beautiful musical features a beguilingly romantic and tango-infused score filled with the exuberant sounds of women reveling in the joys of being alive.

Roles will not be understudied. Seeking actors for roles of the LatinX Diaspora of all gender identities and physical abilities. Available Roles.

OLDER ANUNCIA (mid-70’s to early 80’s) – Elegant yet down-to earth, she is a woman of distinction who has achieved the highest heights in her profession. She moves with the grace of a dancer and her every gesture conveys the history of a life rich in complication. (Lower to mid range.)

MAMÌ, Carmen (late 30’s) Fiercely devoted to her daughter and family, she is passionate, stylish and strong, with a spine of steel. She also has a wry sense of humor and is a fine tanguera. (Mezzo, Strong mix to e)

GRANMAMA, Magdalena (early 60’s) A woman of passion and principle. She has a strong sense of right and wrong, but dives into the fun and humor of life. (Mezzo, mix to d)

TIA, Lucia (early 30’s) Nuturing, creative, and romantic. She is poetic, warm, and maternal. In many ways, the opposite of her sister, Carmen. (Soprano/mix to g)

GRANDFATHER, (60’s) – A loveable rogue, he comes and goes, but his loves never wanes. (Baritone, to e/f)

THE DEER (30’s) – also plays SOLDIER, MOUSTACHE BROTHER – Transformative performer, equally at home in magical realism and real life. Has a touch of the poet and a dry, sly sense of humor. (Baritone to f)

THAT MAN (30’s) – also plays SOLDIER, MOUSTACHE BROTHER, DOCTOR, TEACHER, PRIEST, MOVIE FATHER, and GILBERTO - Transformative performer, equally at home in magical realism and real life. Has a touch of the poet and a smidge of the cad. (Bari-tenor to c)
