WATCH: Broadway is BACK! SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY Begins Performances
Protestors be damned. With Springsteen on Broadway now in performances, the lights of Broadway are officially back on. The Boss and New Jersey native began his intimate solo concert at the St. James Theatre last night to a sold out house which included many familiar faces from Steven Van Zandt to Pete and Chasten Buttigieg to New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.
Proceeds from last night’s performance 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.
A digital lottery has recently been announced for Springsteen on Broadway for all performances through September 4.
The creative team for Springsteen on Broadway includes Heather Wolensky (scenic design), Natasha Katz (lighting design) and Brian Ronan (sound design).
