It received four Academy Award nominations, including a win for Best Original Screenplay. The musical adaptation features a book and lyrics by Crowe, direction by Tony nominee Jeremy Herrin, and songs that span the range from classic hits to new songs by two-time Tony winner Tom Kitt.

Almost Famous had its world premiere in 2019 at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre, starring Casey Likes as William Miller, Solea Pfeiffer as Penny Lane, Rob Colletti as Lester Bangs, Colin Donnell as Russell Hammond, Storm Lever as Polexia, among other Broadway veterans.
