We've been big fans of Springsteen in the office here. A story teller, one hell of a song writer (listen to those lyrics) and one of the finest performers to have ever set foot on stage. Turns out Bruce has even more to offer turning his hand to Broadway. The theatre. Totes OMG. If your knowledge goes only as far as 'Born in the USA', 'Dancing in the dark' and 'I'm on fire' there's so much more to the man it's not funny. Take a look at the link and try not to be blown away. Here's what a few others had to say...
The New York Times
said "as portraits of artists go, there may never have been anything as real – and beautiful – on Broadway". Rolling Stone
noted "it is one of the most compelling and profound shows by a rock musician in recent memory". The Guardian
observed "there's a fragility and a new light cast on the songs and his relationship with Scialfa, as if he stands in her emotional shadow". Variety
reported the show "is as much a self-made monument to its master's vision and hurricane-force ambition as it is to his life and career, and it bears the mark of a self-made man who’ll write his own history"
Enough talking. Go watch it.
