Springsteen’s one-man show, Springsteen On Broadway, began previews on October 3rd, 2017 and officially opened nine nights later. The show was extended three times after its initial eight-week run, and closed on Broadway on December 15th, 2018, bringing the total number of performances to 236.
Springsteen said in a statement announcing the new stand: “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.”
According to the announcement: “Proceeds from Opening Night of Springsteen on Broadway at the St. James Theatre 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.”
Bruce Springsteen admits that well over 50 years into his performing career, whether it’s a festival crowd of 200,000 or a club gig in front of 75 people, hitting the stage has never failed to excite and inspire him: “It’s like you come out and you fall in love every night in some way. When you’re doing it right, it’s like a rebirth, y’know? It’s not a repetition — it’s a renewal — so that involves something happening every night for the first time. And, amazingly enough, it’s like your first kiss in that there’s something in playing. There were thousands of other times, but still when you come out there’s some element of the first time that’s very, very present. And it keeps you very open and present and it’s what people feel.”
