The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — The Boss is com­ing to Broad­way — but he’s ditch­ing the E Street Band.

Bruce Spring­steen said Wed­nes­day on his web­site that he plans to make his Broad­way de­but on­stage this fall at the Wal­ter Kerr The­atre in a solo show in which he per­forms songs from his ca­reer, in­ter­spersed with read­ings of his best­selling mem­oir “Born to Run.’’ “Spring­steen on Broad­way’’ be­gins pre­views Oct. 3 ahead of an Oct. 12 open­ing at the in­ti­mate 960-seat venue. The eight-week run is ex­pected to play through Nov. 26. Spring­steen will per­form five shows a week.

“I wanted to do some shows that were as per­sonal and as in­ti­mate as pos­si­ble,’’ the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer said in a state­ment. “My show is just me, the gui­tar, the pi­ano and the words and mu­sic. Some of the show is spo­ken, some of it is sung. It loosely fol­lows the arc of my life and my work.’’
