New in 2017 Rock icon Bruce Springsteen makes his Broadway debut with a solo acoustic concert which follows the arc of his life and career. Begins October 3rd.
From the producers: After a career of more than 40 years, 20 Grammys and an Oscar, legendary musician Bruce Springsteen comes to Broadway with a solo acoustic performance. It is an intimate night with Bruce, his guitar, a piano, and his stories.
Singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen is best known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss," he is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class, sometimes political sentiments centered on his native New Jersey, his distinctive voice, and his lengthy and energetic stage performances - with concerts from the 1970s to the present decade running at up to four hours in length. His artistic endeavors reflect both his personal growth and the zeitgeist of the times.
“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," says Springsteen. “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."
