Bruce Springsteen Announces ‘Personal and Intimate’ Broadway Residency
Bruce Springsteen officially announced his plans to take over Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theater for eight weeks starting this October.
The “personal and intimate” “Springsteen on Broadway” residency will run from October 12th to November 26th, with Springsteen performing five nights a week, Tuesday to Saturday, each week, the New York Timesreports. Preview performances for the residency begin October 3rd.
“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,” Springsteen said in a statement. “In fact, with one or two exceptions, the 960 seats of the Walter Kerr Theater is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years.”
At each show, Springsteen will perform his music, read excerpts from his memoir Born to Run and deliver spoken word anecdotes from his career.
