Description

'Springsteen on Broadway' is a live, solo, acoustic performance written and performed by Bruce Springsteen, performed and recorded in a under the lights of a small Broadway theatre. It is an intimate night with just Bruce himself, his guitar, a piano, and his stories.

Each song is set between some live reminiscing and yarn-spinning from The Boss himself. The show runs to about two hours with no interval. (G'wan, Bruce!)

His run in the Walter Kerr theatre on West 48th Street was completely sold out every night, with some tickets changing hands on the secondary market for sums in excess of a thousand dollars.

"My vision of these shows is to make them as personal and 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, all of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal—to communicate something of value," says Springsteen.

“Five months after debuting, 'Springsteen on Broadway' stands as one of the most fascinating, invigorating and emotionally nuanced entries in his creative catalog.” - Billboard.

“After decades of arena-sized body language, he’s scaled himself down without losing any of his enormous presence... He’s figured out how to be gigantic in a small place” - Variety.

“As portraits of artists go, there may never have been anything as real — and beautiful — on Broadway.” - New York Times.

“An intimate triumph… one of the most compelling and profound shows by a rock musician in recent memory.” - Rolling Stone.
