Bruce Springsteen playing eight-week run on Broadway this fall

Bruce Springsteen is coming to Broadway this fall, The New York Post reports. No he hasn’t taken a role in Waitress, he’ll be performing a stripped down version of his arena show at the Walter Kerr Theatre for an eight-week run. From The Post:

“He wants to play a smaller house,” a theater source says. “He wants to try something more intimate, and he likes the idea of being on Broadway.”

Dates haven’t been finalized, but Springsteen will likely open in November. He’ll perform five times a week. Jujamcyn Theaters, which owns the Kerr, gave him a sweetheart deal he couldn’t refuse: no rent for the eight weeks.

The 975-seat Kerr has been empty since the musical “Amélie” closed in May.

“He’ll keep the lights on in the building, and they’ll sell gazillions of dollars worth of booze,” a source says.

The Post also mentions there is speculation that this may be a lead-in to Bruce turning his memoir Born to Run into a musical. We shall see. No word on dates or tickets yet. Stay tuned.
