“The Boss” makes his Broadway debut in a solo acoustic show.
“My show is just me, the guitar, the piano and the words and music,” Springsteen says. “Some of the show is spoken, some of it is sung. It loosely follows the arc of my life and my work. All of it together is in pursuit of my constant goal to provide an entertaining evening and to communicate something of value.”
(Previews began March 28, 2018, opened April 23, 2018, closes Dec. 30, 2018)

Three actresses play the legendary performer at various stages of her career: Storm Lever as “Duckling Donna,” Ariana DeBose as “Disco Donna” and Tony Award winner LaChanze as “Diva Donna.”
