Producers with their eye on the Walter Kerr Theatre should probably look elsewhere.

Bruce Springsteen announced Wednesday he was extending his Broadway show for the third and last time (do we believe that?), through Dec. 15. Despite average prices of more than $500, the autobiographical show remains one of the hottest tickets in town, attracting an array of famous names, most recently Barack and Michelle Obama, who watched from balcony seats on March 3. Others who’ve taken in the show include everyone from Oprah Winfrey and Tina Fey to Sen. Chuck Schumer.

Springsteen’s been at this since last October, combining all of his biggest hits (some performed with his wife, Patti Scialfa) with bits of prose from his memoir “Born to Run.” The show plays to less than 1,000 people, as opposed to the masses he’s used to in an arena show.

The bad news: Only people already verified through TicketMaster’s Verified Fan program will have a shot at the new block of tickets. Everyone else will have to rely on Lucky Seat’s daily digital lottery. At this point, you might have a better chance at Powerball.
