Bruce Springsteen reinvents the Broadway show as run comes to close

Saturday 06:06 GMT

At the end of an acoustic version of Born to Run, sometime around 10.30pm next Saturday, the Walter Kerr Theater will finally go dark on Springsteen on Broadway.

It is possible that the magic will not translate to the small screen, but for Springsteen fans and Broadway veterans, the run has been almost universally acclaimed. Tony award-winning producer Ken Davenport, who writes The Producer’s Perspective blog, said: “This one for me hits the trifecta for what a theatrical production on Broadway should do: it was an incredible piece of art; it made money; and I think it expanded the Broadway theatre going audience … whenever you can do those three things, you’ve hit the bullseye.”
