Springsteen on Broadway has been extended through June. I told you this on October 20th , but hey–nice to hear it officially now.
The show is great, and it’s easy– well, not easy, but less complicated– for Bruce just to stay there and collect about $2 million a week. It’s a lot easier than shlepping around the world with the E Street Band.
SOB will now run until June 30th. This will allow to Bruce to pick up a bunch of theater awards like a Tony, Outer Critics, Drama Desk, etc. And then he can make a graceful exit, take off the summer and hit the road in fall 2018 with the band again. (That’s just me, surmising, hoping.)
What will likely follow will be a soundtrack CD and an HBO special. Bruce’s managers, Jon Landau and Barbara Carr, have pulled off quite a coup with this project. Nicely done.
