Springsteen on Broadway Extends Run at Walter Kerr Theatre
Bruce Springsteen was born to run longer on the Great White Way.
Earlier today, Ticketmaster announced via Twitter that rock-and-roll icon Bruce Springsteen has extended his upcoming Broadway engagement, now running through February 3, 2018, beyond its original November 26 end date. Performances of Springsteen on Broadway are set to begin at the Walter Kerr Theatre on October 3 in advance of an October 12 opening (Springsteen will perform five shows per week Tuesday-Saturday). Tickets for the show went onsale today exclusively through Ticketmaster Verified Fan.
Springsteen describes the show as follows: "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."
The creative team for Springsteen on Broadway includes Heather Wolensky (scenic design), Natasha Katz (lighting design) and Brian Ronan (sound design).
Springsteen's studio albums include Born to Run (1975) and Born in the U.S.A. (1984), among many others. Over the course of his career, he has been awarded 20 Grammys and two Golden Globes. He is also a member of both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
