Born to extended run? Bruce Springsteen fans who missed out on “Springsteen on Broadway” may have another chance to score tickets for the show next spring.
The Boss could extend his Broadway run at the Walter Kerr Theatre — which was the originally scheduled to run through Feb. 3— possibly until June, according to reports. Variety has reached out to a rep for Springsteen for confirmation; reps for the production itself would not confirm that an extension is in the works.
“Springsteen on Broadway,” the musician’s first run of solo dates since 2005’s “Devils & Dust” tour, includes music from all eras of his career, interspersed with stories and material drawn from his best-selling memoir “Born to Run.” At fewer than 1,000 seats, the Walter Kerr Theater is a fraction of the size of the arenas that Springsteen usually plays.
The show — which began performances on Oct. 3, officially opened Oct. 12 — has already made $2.33 million in its first seven days of sales according to numbers provided by The Broadway League.
Springsteen directed the show himself. Heather Wolensky (scenic design), Natasha Katz (lighting design) and Brian Ronan (sound design) round out the production team.
Friends, peers and fellow musicians have been taking in the show over the last two weeks, including guitarist Nils Lofgren, who attended on Tuesday night (Oct. 17) and tweeted from the theater.
