Bruce Springsteen is set to make his Broadway debut this year.
He will be performing Springsteen on Broadway for eight weeks at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York.
“I wanted to do some shows that were as personal and as intimate as possible,” Springsteen said. “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. 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.”
He will be doing five shows a week at the smallest theatre he has played in in the past 40 years. The shows end in late November.
