About The Event

“Almost Famous was destined  to conquer Broadway! It’s an entrancing tapestry of sound–the chaotic, communal spirit of ’70’s rock distilled in a musical.” —Los Angeles Times

Join fellow Columbians for a Broadway performance of Almost Famous, adapted from the beloved Cameron Crowe film of the same name, followed by an exclusive talkback featuring composer Tom Kitt

The year is 1973 and it’s all happening. Led Zeppelin is king, Richard Nixon is President, and idealistic 15-year-old William Miller is an aspiring music journalist. 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. Composed by Tom Kitt, Almost Famous is a hilarious and heartfelt celebration of community, family, fandom, and the power of music. 

This Columbia Night is presented in partnership with CAA Arts Access and is open to current Columbia and Barnard students on a first-come, first-served basis with limited capacity. For more information about the performance, please visit the event website.
