Springsteen said in a press release, “I loved doing ‘Springsteen on Broadway’ and I’m thrilled to have been asked to reprise the show as part of the reopening of Broadway.”
Springsteen performed most of “Springsteen on Broadway” solo, though his wife Patti Scialfa joined him for two numbers at most shows. It has not been announced if these shows will follow the same format.
Proceeds from the show’s opening night will go to various local charities, including the Boys and Girls Club of Monmouth County, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, Food Bank for New York City, Fulfill (Monmouth & Ocean Counties Foodbank), Long Island Cares, the NJ Pandemic Relief Fund and The Actor’s Fund.
The show originally ran from Oct. 2017 to Dec. at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which is significantly smaller than the St. James. (Its capacity is 975, while the St. James’ is 1,710). Tony won a Special Tony Award for the show, which he also adapted into a film and an album.
According to a press release, “Audience members will be required to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination in order to enter the theater. For more information visit brucespringsteen.net or jujamcyn.com/springsteenFAQ.
