NEW YORK — Bruce Springsteen is headed back to the Great White Way.
New Jersey’s favorite son will return to Broadway with his one-man show, the cleverly titled “Springsteen on Broadway,” this summer, he announced Monday.
“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,” the singer said in a statement.
The show originally ran for 236 sold-out performances from October 2017 through December 2018, earning Springsteen a Special Tony Award.
Part concert, part audio memoir, “Springsteen on Broadway” is based on the “Dancing in the Dark” singer’s autobiography “Born to Run.”
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.
“Springsteen on Broadway” will run from June 26 to Sept. 4 at Jujamcyn’s St. James Theatre.
All audience members will be required to have a full COVID-19 vaccination.
