Bruce Springsteen announces return of Springsteen On Broadway series

Bruce Springsteen will return to Broadway this summer for a limited run of his acclaimed “Springsteen On Broadway” performances at Jujamcyn’s St. James Theatre.

Based on his worldwide best-selling autobiography, “Born To Run”, the series sees the New Jersey rocker performing and sharing the stories behind songs from his legendary catalog.

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.

Now, Springsteen will return for another run of show from June 26 to September 4.

“I loved doing Springsteen on Broadway,” says the singer, “and I’m thrilled to have been asked to reprise the show as part of the reopening of Broadway.”

Proceeds from opening night 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 Actor’s Fund.

Tickets for “Springsteen On Broadway” will go on sale Thursday, June 10 at 12pm ET through the show’s official ticketing provider SeatGeek.

Audience members will be required to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter the theater.

Springsteen’s current release is 2020’s “Letter To You”; the project was recorded at the singer’s home studio with producer Ron Aniello. See also:
