Road trip tip: "Springsteen on Broadway"
Springsteen on Broadway
Walter Kerr Theatre, 219 West 48th St., New York City
We know that Bruce Springsteen can rock stadiums. Turns out he can also fire up an intimate Broadway theater. His Tony-winning show, “Springsteen on Broadway,” consists of just The Boss, telling richly detailed stories of his life and leading from those tales into him performing some of his greatest songs. His wife, Patti Scialfa, does come out for two songs, but the rest of the night — all two-and-a-half hours of it, with no intermission — is Bruce by himself. It’s magical. If you can get tickets before the show closes in December, do.
