Bruce Springsteen returns to Broadway.
Springsteen on Broadway, the rock legend’s autobiographical show, which ran 236 performances, including seven previews, in 2017 and 2018, opens on June 26 at the St. James Theater, 246 W. 44th Street, with additional performances through May 4. September, according to an announcement. As of now, the show will be the first on Broadway since the pandemic suspended performances in March 2020. While some Broadway productions are returning as early as August 4th, most have targeted reopening in mid-September.
Tickets will go on sale Thursday at 12 p.m. Eastern Time through SeatGeek, the show’s official ticket seller. SeatGeek, a challenger to Ticketmaster, has a contract with Jujamcyn Theaters, which operate both St. James and Walter Kerr Theaters, where “Springsteen on Broadway” premiered.
Although Broadway theaters and producers have announced that they will reopen their full show program after Labor Day, the pace of vaccination and the promising downward trend in coronavirus cases in the United States have encouraged many cast and producers across the entertainment industry to move forward quickly .
According to the show’s announcement, viewers must present proof of full Covid-19 vaccination along with their tickets in order to enter the theater. Entry times are staggered and participants must have a Covid-19 health check-up within 24 hours of the show.
Springsteen on Broadway – which originated from a private performance at the White House in January 2017, in the final days of the Obama administration – is a largely solo show by Springsteen, taken from his 2016 hit catalog and autobiography scoops. “Born to run.” The show weaves in stories from Springsteen’s career, with insights into how he wrote songs like “Born in the USA” (His wife Patti Scialfa joined him on a few songs.)
The show was a blockbuster hit, selling $ 113 million in tickets and playing in front of a total of 223,585 fans. It was also filmed for a Netflix special of the same name that went online shortly after the last screening in December 2018.
Proceeds from the opening night of Springsteen on Broadway will be donated to a number of charities, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County, New Jersey, Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS, and the Food Bank for New York City.
