Bruce on Broadway
If you find yourself in New York City between now and February 3rd, there’s a really Boss event going on at the Walter Kerr Theatre hosted by a very familiar face and voice. “Springsteen on Broadway” has been described as part concert/part retrospective/part confession by the one-and-only Bruce Springsteen with topics ranging from family and our country to faith and music’s magic.
Much of the inspiration for this show stems from the iconic musician’s 2016 autobiography “Born to Run,” while the stage’s aid of an acoustic guitar, microphone and grand piano accompany Springsteen’s tales of his childhood and path to the American artist that he is today. “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. 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,” says Springsteen.
