Anika Larsen Opens Up About Her ALMOST FAMOUS Character- 'She's Such a Phenomenon'

Anika Larsen might be heading back to Broadway soon in Almost Famous, which premiered at San Diego's Old Globe last year and is rumored to land on Broadway. She talked all about the new musical on yesterday's installment of Stars in the House.

Anika plays Elaine- the mother of the central character. "Five years ago, before I had kids, I wouldn't be able to do it as well," admits Larsen. "The show is autobiographical, so I'm playing Cameron [Crowe]'s mom. She so incredibly three-dimensional and such a phenomenon."

Added composer Tom Kitt, "We all know that Frances McDormand is just an unbelievable talent, but Anika has come into it and made it her own in a wonderful, special way."
