What does that mean, exactly?  I don't get it.

I just saw that. "Dates haven’t been finalized, but Springsteen will likely open in November. He’ll perform five times a week." Imagine that. Like heaven on earth. I bet getting tickets would be impossible though.

The Boss is Broadway bound.

Bruce Springsteen will make his Broadway debut at the Walter Kerr Theatre for an eight-week run in the fall, The Post has learned exclusively.

Sources say Springsteen will do a pared-down version of the set he usually performs in huge arenas and stadiums all over the world.

“He wants to play a smaller house,” a source at the Kerr says. “He wants to try something more intimate, and he likes the idea of being on Broadway.”

Dates haven’t been finalized, but Springsteen will likely open in November. He’ll perform five times a week. Jujamcyn Theaters, which owns the Kerr, gave him a sweetheart deal he couldn’t refuse: no rent for the eight weeks.

The 975-seat Kerr has been empty since the musical “Amélie” closed in May.

“He’ll keep the lights on in the building, and they’ll sell gazillions of dollars worth of booze,” a source says.

Springsteen will sell out the run in a minute, though whatever he makes will pale in comparison to the tens of millions of dollars he makes on tour.

But as one music source says: “He’s got all the money in the world. He can do what he likes.”

Some insiders believe Springsteen’s Broadway gig may be a curtain raiser to another project — turning his best-selling memoir, “Born To Run,” into a musical. Several producers, dollar signs dancing in their eyes, approached Springsteen about adapting the book for the stage after The Post reported he was interested in the idea.

It could be a blockbuster along the lines of “Jersey Boys” and “Beautiful: the Carole King Musical.”

But that’s a long way off. In the meantime, you’ll be able to see the Boss “live and in person” at the Kerr this fall.

Really not sure how I feel 'bout this one.  Get me there and I'll be tickled pink of course. 

The Vegas jokes are going to be plenty now, even though it ain't Vegas.

Less than 40,000 tickets - about one night at Giants Stadium - do not throw back tickets!  HA.

If by 'pared down' they mean a smaller version of the E Street Band....very cool.  If it means solo Bruce playing acoustic guitar and occasional piano/organ, I can't get myself too juiced up over this.

It means he's going to change up songs. 

So this time he'll be playing Working on the Broadway.
