Bruce Springsteen is bringing his acclaimed Springsteen on Broadway show back to the St. James Theatre for an encore run. The residency will begin June 26th and run through September 4th. Tickets go on sale Thursday via SeatGeek.

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

Audience members will be required to show proof that they’ve been vaccinated for Covid-19 before they can enter the theater. Proceeds from the first show will go 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 was born out of a special show that Springsteen played for Barack Obama and his staff in the final days of his administration. Previews began on October 3rd, 2017 and it wrapped up December 15th, 2018 after grossing over $100 million from 236 shows. The set mixed hits like “Born to Run,” “Dancing in the Dark,” and “Thunder Road” with lesser-known tunes like “The Wish” and “My Father’s House.” Patti Scialfa joined him most nights for duets “Tougher Than the Rest” and “Brilliant Disguise.”

Springsteen’s most recent LP, A Letter To You, was released in October 2020. He promoted it by playing Saturday Night Live with the E Street Band, but he has not played in public since the start of the pandemic.

We’ll just jump right in there Broadway in New York City and see what’s going on, it’s been a while since I was around any of that.

Before I even look New York is way bigger than it used to be when I was younger, like with the population increase.

They’d need like ten thousand times the size of it is today to compare to what it looked like when I was a kid, today it’s not very big looking because the city got so large.

They have a webpage anyway www.broadway.com with the shows listed on it playing on Broadway.

What is Broadway anyway? Good question…it’s a street in New York City with all the venues on it for large plays, off Broadway must be the street next to it.

Yeah, getting a good spot down there would be hard these days.

Issues like the city being too large with the reduced area for having plays, I dunno I might run mine for this page from across town.

Just for the cheaper box venue, later we’ll check the rates and see what the area looks like on the blog to see the cost of starting your own Broadway production or Off Broadway Production or Crosstown like ours.

We’ll start with a quick review of Broadway.com , they have all the plays listed for Broadway and Off Broadway with ticket sales.

Let’s see what’s playing:

They have about fifteen productions running and several off Broadway productions including surprise Phantom Of The Opera and The Lion King, I was right even before I looked…I must be still current on that play, Aladdin and Mrs. Doubtfire…that would be the trip to New York I guess if I was going.

That’s my opinion of the page – didn’t have time to do anything on it yet.

Here’s a walking video tour from some guy down in times square this week on Youtube.
