Back in September, it was rumoured that Cameron Crowe was developing a musical adaptation of his 2000 film Almost Famous with Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Tom Kitt (American Idiot) and director Jeremy Herrin (People, Places and Things). Now it’s ready to make its debut.

On Saturday, Crowe confirmed that the musical will open this year at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, California, where most of the story takes place. Previews begin on Friday, September 13 (the film originally opened on Friday, September 13, 2000) with an official premiere set for September 27.

“As this experience started to be where we could actually open the play at the Old Globe, right across from where I used to live and within a one-mile radius from where I first met Lester and first fell in love with music,” Crowe explained. “It just felt like, O.K., this becomes a personal story that kind of goes back home to where it all began.”

What kind of music can you expect to hear? Although the film contains bangers from Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Joni Mitchell, the only song confirmed to be featured in the play is Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer”.
