Boss hits the stage


AF­TER check­ing off all the rock star su­perla­tives in his 68 years, Bruce Spring­steen has set out to cre­ate a wholly new per­for­mance tem­plate.

Spring­steen on Broad­way, which opened yes­ter­day, is a deeply per­sonal life story with a sound­track, a one-man (or one-man and one-woman for two songs) show that’s by turns funny and touch­ing.

He’s on­stage five nights a week through Fe­bru­ary 3 in what has been called his Broad­way de­but.

The dis­tinc­tion is im­por­tant.

This is a set piece, not a con­cert where Spring­steen usu­ally changes his set-list from night to night.
