It’s a new show for Broadway lovers. Broadway is adding their new tales of broken hearts and dashed dreams as Bruce Springsteen plans his debut this fall on the Great White Way.
On Wednesday, the musician announced on his website “Springsteen on Broadway”, a series of solo shows at the Walter Kerr Theater in New York City. The shows are set to 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,” said Springsteen. “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. In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 of the Walter Kerr Theater is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years.”
The future Broadway star will be presented on stage alone with jut a piano and a guitar. Bruce Springsteen will perform his songs and read passages from his 2016 memoir, “Born to Run.”
Springsteen claims the project is “All of it together.” The show will be a union of his life and grand moments that have made the rock star.
The show is set to begin on October 3rd with an official opening on October 12th. There will be five shows a week through November 26th.
