'Almost Famous' to offer Broadway rush and lottery tickets
The musical plays the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
Get ready to rock at Almost Famous! The Broadway musical adaptation of the hit 2000 Cameron Crowe film will offer rush and lottery tickets, beginning with its first performance on October 3.
Almost Famous will offer a digital Broadway lottery for $45 tickets. The lottery is open for entries between midnight and 3 p.m. the day before each performance. Winners are drawn at 9 a.m. for the following day's matinee performances and 3 p.m. for evening performances. Entrants can request up to two tickets.
Additionally, Almost Famous will offer $40 rush tickets in person at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, beginning when the box office opens at 10 a.m. each day (except Sunday, when it opens at noon). Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis for that day's performances and are subject to availability. Each person can purchase up to two tickets.
Based on Crowe's own life, Almost Famous follows William Miller, an aspiring teenage music journalist who gets assigned to cover a rock band on tour. As he gets closer to the band and deeper into the 1970s rock world, however, he starts to lose his objectivity. Crowe adapted his own Oscar-winning screenplay into the musical's book and lyrics, and Pulitzer and Tony winner Tom Kitt composed the music for Almost Famous on Broadway.
