Education Session

Each year NYSAE hosts a dynamic education session prior to the trade show portion. Information on the education session will be posted as soon as it's confirmed.

Broadway Show - Almost Famous

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. ALMOST FAMOUS is a hilarious and heartfelt celebration of community, family, fandom and the power of music.
