Bruce Springsteen Signs Up for More Time on Broadway - The New York Times: "Bruce Springsteen is staying on Broadway.
Mr. Springsteen on Wednesday announced a third extension of his sold-out show, “Springsteen on Broadway,” to Dec. 15.
The production, which features Mr. Springsteen telling stories about his life and delivering stripped-down arrangements of his songs, has been an enormous commercial success, bringing in $44 million thus far at the box office.
The average ticket price last week was a whopping $507.60; by comparison, the average price for “The Lion King” was $149.27. (Those are prices paid to the box office — some people spend more buying from resellers.)
Even critics liked it. “As portraits of artists go,” Jesse Green wrote in The New York Times, “there may never have been anything as real — and beautiful — on Broadway.”"
