Springsteen Will Get a Tony Award for *Springsteen on Broadway* 

Springsteen on Broadway

One of these days I am going to get around to writing a review of the show.  I saw it in February 2018.

Here is a taste of Rolling Stone’s coverage:

The Tony Awards will honor Bruce Springsteen in June for his “once-in-a-life” production of Springsteen on Broadway

In a live-streamed ceremony on Tuesday announcing this year’s nominations, the Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr. called Springsteen on Broadway a “theatergoing experience of extraordinary dimensions.” In addition to Springsteen, the Tonys will also present John Leguizamo with a special award to celebrate his commitment to telling stories that shine a light on racial and socioeconomic injustice.

Springsteen first announced his “personal and intimate” five-nights-a-week residency in August 2017. He decided to set up shop at the Walter Kerr theater, which he acknowledged “is probably the smallest venue I’ve played in the last 40 years.”

“My idea was really just to present the work that I’ve done for the past 40 years or so and let it speak for itself,” the singer added in September. “I didn’t feel like I needed to get on a soapbox or be real ideological about it. I wanted the night to play very naturally, and be broad enough to be about all the things I’ve written about over the years. And in that way, in the contrast, it would comment.”
