The New York Post has reported that the Boss will play an eight-week run starting in the fall at the Walter Kerr Theatre.

According to sources, Springsteen wanted to play a stripped down, more intimate show, which could mean it is a solo performance with no E-Street Band, and that he has always wanted to play on Broadway. The owners of the theater, which only has 975 seats, also gave him a great deal with no rent for eight weeks.

There is also a rumor that Springsteen may be working on a Broadway musical based on his memoir, Born to Run.

Springsteen seems to be happiest when he is performing and a fall start for this run would put him back in the spotlight. His last full show was February 25 at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand.
