Bruce Springsteen offered up a brief preview of his forthcoming Broadway run that’ll present The Boss in an intimate setting where he’ll both perform and read excerpts from his memoir.

Playing at the Pollak Theatre in West Long Branch, NJ, Springsteen played eleven acoustic songs at the invite-only show, spanning a number of eras from better known tunes like “Born In the U.S.A.,” “Thunder Road” and “Born to Run” to more autobiographical songs “Growin’ Up,” “My Hometown” and “My Father’s House.”

Springsteen’s Broadway run begins October 12, performing five shows a week through February 3.
