The Boss on Broadway
Bruce Springsteen announced Wednesday “Springsteen on Broadway,” a series of solo shows at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City that will explore the rocker’s life through his words and music.
“I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible,” Springsteen said in a statement. “I chose Broadway for this project because it has the beautiful old theaters which seemed like the right setting for what I have in mind.”
The show will present Springsteen alone with just a piano and guitar (sorry, E Street Band) as he performs his songs and reads passages from his memoir “Born to Run.”
“All of it together,” Springsteen said of the show, “is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value.”
“Springsteen on Broadway” performances will begin Oct. 3, with an official opening on Oct. 12. There will be five shows a week through Nov. 26.
