‘Springsteen on Broadway’ attracts Oprah, eyes extended run
'Springsteen on Broadway' continues to draw out the stars, as fans are hoping there's truth to rumors of additional shows. The schedule (with five shows a week) already was extended once into February 2018. (Ten weeks were added on after the original two months of dates sold out in milliseconds.)
Since the show's official opening night, there's been a steady stream of celebrities in the audience. Most of the E Street Band has made it to support their 'fearless leader', Bruce Springsteen. This week, Oprah, her BFF Gayle King and Harry Connick Junior sat in the same row on Tuesday, while expectant dad Billy Joel was spotted in the crowd on Wednesday.
A four-line blurb in the NY Post has ignited speculation that Bruce Springsteen could settle into his theater digs, well into the spring. In the meantime, that digital lottery for tickets remains one hope for Bruce fans unable to spend a small fortune on tickets.
