That contradiction ends this year, however, as the Boss begins what is perhaps the closest thing he's had to a regular gig. With Springsteen on Broadway, currently scheduled to run through Feb. 3, he's committed himself to arriving at the same theater at the same time multiple nights a week to perform the same setlist with the same script. The show, too, will be wildly successful: The first week of previews pulled in pulled in $2.33 million , and the average price of a ticket is, at $497, nearly double what it takes to see Hamilton. But nothing about Springsteen on Broadway feels like an easy cash-grab, or even simply a rock star looking for a kinder schedule that doesn't involve trekking from city to city day after day. Instead, with its mix of live music and stories and readings adapted from his 2016 autobiography, Born to Run, Springsteen on Broadway lets one of popular music's most beloved icons flex all kinds of creative muscle in a rare, intimate setting that showcases the true breadth of talents.
