Monmouth College is the home of the Bruce Springsteen archives. Tuesday night (9/19), it apparently was also the scene of a dress rehearsal for Bruce's multiple month residency in Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre. The unannounced performance was an invitation only affair that the University declined to confirm or deny. Semi-confirmation it took place came in a non-specific social media reference by Patti Scialfa's brother who wrote, 'It's easy sometimes to forget what true genius is, until its right in front of you." The audience in the 700 seat Pollack Theater on the Long Branch, New Jersey campus of Monmouth was limited to about 200. Capacity at the Walter Kerr Theatre is just under 1,000.
