New York Post reporter Michael Riedel, who broke the story that Bruce Springsteen is considering a series of shows at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre later this year, has posted an update with some more information.
Most intriguingly, he writes that The Boss will “be reading from ‘Born to Run,’ his best-selling memoir, and picking up his guitar from time to time to illustrate a point or a moment from his life with one of his songs.”
Riedel also writes that Jujamcyn Theaters, which owns the theater, “is getting a little nervous: The company passed on some plays to make room for the Boss and would like to get things rolling. But Springsteen, 67, seems to be in no rush to make his Broadway debut. He’s putting together his act and will make an official announcement when he’s good and ready.”
According to Riedel, Springsteen plans to perform five shows a week, for eight weeks, in the 975-seat theater. Though nothing, obviously, is definite yet.
Springsteen released the “Born to Run” book in September 2016.
