After more than a year, the lights of Broadway are, once again, illuminated. No, it wasn’t a long-running hit like The Phantom of the Opera or Chicago, but eager fans were just as excited to give a standing ovation to the boss himself, Bruce Springsteen.
Bruce Springsteen re-opened Broadway at the St. James Theatre on Saturday night and will continue a limited run through September 4.
Proceeds from the opening night of Springsteen on Broadway will be donated to a group of local New York and New Jersey charities, including the Boys and Girls Club of Monmouth County, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids, Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Food Bank for New York City, Fulfill (Monmouth & Ocean Counties Foodbank), Long Island Cares, NJ Pandemic Relief Fund and The Actors Fund.
Based on his autobiography Born to Run, the show’s original run included 236 sold-out performances at Jujamcyn’s Walter Kerr Theatre, beginning in October 2017 and concluding in December 2018. Springsteen earned a Special Tony Award for the performances, which were later adapted into a film and a soundtrack album.
Tickets for Springsteen on Broadway are on sale through the show’s official ticketing provider SeatGeek.
For each performance, 32 lottery tickets will be sold for $75 each. Click here to register.
