“The Boss on Broadway” has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it, Bruce Springsteen fans? The New York Post reveals in an exclusive report the rock legend will be playing an eight-week engagement this fall at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City.
A theater source tells the newspaper that Springsteen’s Broadway run will likely begin in November and will feature five performances a week. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer is expected to play a pared-down version of the shows he usually performs at large venues around the world. The Kerr Theatre seats just 975 people.
“He wants to play a smaller house,” the source maintains. “He wants to try something more intimate, and he likes the idea of being on Broadway.” Bruce has never performed a full show on Broadway before.
The Post also points out that some industry insiders believe Springsteen’s stand at the New York City theater may set the stage for another Broadway-related project: a stage musical based on his 2016 memoir, Born to Run. The newspaper reported late last year that Bruce seemed open to the idea of such a production.
