Springsteen on Broadway
In December of 2016, Bruce Springsteen had an idea for an intimate performance that he wanted to put on for his fans. By the summer of 2017, there were rumors of Springsteen performing his music on a Broadway stage. Then on August 9, 2017, these rumors were confirmed to be true; that Springsteen would indeed be running an eight-week long show at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre. The Walter Kerr Theatre can only hold 960 seats, which provides for an extremely intimate and personal setting with the famous rockstar.
The show involves Springsteen performing solo with his guitar and piano. He was quoted saying, “It [the show] loosely follows the arc of my life and my work. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value.” Springsteen performed a rehearsal show on September 19, 2017 at Monmouth University. In attendance were 200 of his closest family and friends. Then premieres on the Broadway stage began on October 3rd. Official performances started on October 12th. The show was to run for eight weeks with Springsteen performing five shows a week. Due to the high demand for tickets, the run was extended to June 30, 2018. It was recently announced that the show will be extending its run for a third time. Eighty-one additional performances will be added from July 10, 2018 until December 15, 2018. Involved with the production of the show is Heather Wolensky (scenic design), Natasha Katz (lighting design), and Brian Ronan (sound design).
If you are a Springsteen fan, then Springsteen on Broadway is the show for you. It has been over 40 years since Bruce Springsteen has performed in a venue as small as the Walter Kerr Theatre. Variety magazine wrote, “After decades of arena-sized body language, he’s scaled himself down without losing any of his enormous presence... He’s figured out how to be gigantic in a small place.” Do not miss out on a once in a lifetime chance to see this legendary musician perform live.
