Bruce Springsteen is set to return to Broadway this summer.
“The Boss” will headline a limited run of his show “Springsteen on Broadway” which will start on June 26 at the St. James Theater. As of now, the show will close on Sept. 4.
“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 71-year-old musician said in a statement.
The news was likewise reported on Springsteen’s official Twitter account.
“Springsteen on Broadway” appeared in 2017 and was extended three times, at long last shutting in late 2018. Columbia Records put out a two-disc soundtrack of “Springsteen on Broadway” and a filmed version of the show is on Netflix.
In the show, Springsteen performs 15 tunes — including “My Hometown,” “Thunder Road,” and “Born in the USA” — and tells stories about growing up in New Jersey. A portion of the accounts will be natural to readers of his autobiography, and he even reads from it. His wife, Patti Scialfa, accompanies him for “Brilliant Disguise.”
Audience members will be needed to give proof of full COVID-19 vaccination to enter the theater.
