It’s official! Bruce Springsteen is heading to Broadway this fall with his just announced “Springsteen on Broadway” debut.
Springsteen’s solo show will open Oct. 3 at the Walter Kerr Theatre (219 West 28th West 48th Street) for a run through Nov. 26. The Freehold native will perform five shows a week, according to an announcement on his official website. The run will officially open Oct. 12.
The show will feature songs from the musician’s career interspersed with intimate stories from his current book, Born to Run.
“I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible. 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,” Springsteen says. “In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 seats of the Walter Kerr Theatre is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years. 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. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value.”
The creative team for “Springsteen on Broadway” includes Heather Wolensky (scenic design), Natasha Katz (lighting design) and Brian Ronan (sound design).
