Bruce Springsteen will reportedly take his arena shows to the more intimate stages of Broadway later this year.

According to the New York Post, Springsteen will play the 975-seat Walter Kerr Theatre for an eight-week run in the fall. The sets will be scaled-down versions of the same shows he plays for stadiums and arenas around the world.

“He wants to play a smaller house,” a source at the Kerr Theatre told the New York Post. “He wants to try something more intimate, and he likes the idea of being on Broadway.” Plus, “he’ll keep the lights on in the building, and they’ll sell gazillions of dollars worth of booze.”

There are no specific dates yet, and the shows haven’t been officially announced, but apparently Springsteen is looking to open in November. He’ll reportedly play five shows a week there.

The Post notes that the Kerr Theatre has been empty since last month, when the musical Amélie closed there, and that the theater’s parent company, Jujamcyn Theaters, offered Springsteen “a sweetheart deal he couldn’t refuse: No rent for the eight weeks.”

The paper also suggests that Springsteen on Broadway may be testing waters for another project down the road: a musical take on his bestselling memoir, Born to Run. Apparently, producers approached the singer and songwriter about adapting his book for the stage after the Boss expressed some interest in doing so.
